keeping close to sky

Great trouble comes from not knowing what is enough.

Great conflict arises from wanting too much.

When we know when enough is enough,

there will always be enough.

~Lao-Tzu

this mystery of how we keep on going…..

inquiry for today~ may you know your heart’s truth to linger into the dusk…..

spiritual peace

Indeed, a useful support for living free from attachment is to realize the transience of everything. As Lao-Tzu wrote, “If you realize that all things change, there is nothing you will try to hold on to. The wisdom of awareness is our greatest ally here. It helps us see how nothing lasts, how we are unable to hold on to anything because experience is always slipping through our fingers like sand. This knowing allows us to hold everything lightly. Rather than feel entitled to what we want, and feel animosity toward what we don’t want, we foster the conditions to grow the heart of acceptance and ease for whatever happens.
