Emptied our own-selves

Emptied our own-selves

The nature of reality (Tao Te Ching)

1)--- The bigger truth is that life will unfold according to the will of the divine.

2)--- The balanced view is to leave everything up to God, except what’s right in front of you to do in this moment. If you are hungry, eat. If you are tired, sleep. If you are sick, find a way to heal.

3)--- If there is a choice to be made, check what is truest to do and then do it. Then you can forget about the results of your actions because that part isn’t up to you. That part is up to the bigger truth of God’s will.

4)--- There’s a line in the Tao Te Ching that goes something like this: “Do your work and then step back.” This points to the truth that our actions are up to us, but the results of our actions are not.

5)--- The nature of reality can’t be described or explained with words, and it can’t be experienced through the ordinary senses. In speaking about something that can’t be spoken about, the easiest approach is often to use negation. If we can’t speak directly about something, then we’re left with saying what it is not.
