Natural Tai Chi

True understanding in a person has two attributes:

awareness and action.

Together they form a natural tai chi

Who can enjoy enlightenment and remain indifferent to suffering in the world?

This is not in keeping with the Way

Only those who increase their service along with their understanding can be called men and women of Tao.

-- Hua Hu Ching, Lao Tzu

The Hands That Work On Us...

What is required of us is that we love the difficult and learn to deal with it. In the difficult are the friendly forces, the hands that work on us.

-- Rainer Maria Rilke (1875 - 1926)
