In the Taoist tradition…


In the Taoist tradition,
when we quiet our thoughts in meditation,
we let go of trying to manipulate the world
based on our inner fantasies of how things should be.

We attain a humble sense of peace
simply by observing and responding directly
to what’s happening in the always –
new present moment.

– John Selby
