“When your growth takes place, all these subtle things start expressing themselves…
I bless you all, please develop those subtle things within you.
They are already there; you do not have to do anything.
Only understand and locate.”
Hua Hu Ching
(traditionally attributed to Laozi – Lao Tzu)
38“Why scurryabout looking for the truth?It vibrates in every thingand everynot-thing, right off the tip of yournose. Can you be stillandsee it in the mountain?The pine tree?Yourself?Don’t imaginethat you’ll discover itby accumulating more knowledge.Knowledge creates doubt, and doubtmakes you ravenous for moreknowledge. You can’t get fulleating this way.The wiseperson dineson something more subtle:He eats the understandingthat the named was born fromthe unnamed, that all being flowsfrom non-being, that the describableworld emanates from an indescribablesource. He finds this subtle truthinside his own self,and becomescompletelycontent.So who canbe still and watchthe chess game of the world?The foolish are always makingimpulsive moves, but the wise knowthat victory and defeat are decided bysomething more subtle. They seethat something perfect existsbefore any moveis made.This subtle perfectiondeteriorates whenartificial actions are taken, so becontent not to disturb thepeace.Remain quiet.Discover the harmony inyour own being. Embrace it.If you can do this, you will gaineverything, and the world willbecome healthy again.
If you can’t, you will belost in the shadowsforever. ”
