The great mass of breath is the wind…


The great mass of breath is the wind, yet there are times
when the wind does not move. When it does move,
a myriad of orifices and appendages are aroused to make sounds.

Have you never listened to the sound of the wind in the cavities,
mountains and among the branches of trees?

The wind blows in a thousand different ways,
but each sound is produced in its own way.

What is it that excites all this, and makes each way be itself,
and all these things be self-produced?

– Chuang Tzu
