“Open yourself to heaven and earth”

 

Express yourself completely,
then become quiet.
Open yourself to heaven and earth
and be like the forces of nature.

When the wind blows, there is only the wind,
when it rains, there is only rain,
when the clouds pass, the sun promises to shine.

If you open yourself to insight
you are at one with insight
and you can use it completely.

Open yourself to heaven and earth.
Then trust your natural responses
and everything will fall into place.

Lao Tzu
