All you need to know…

33

Knowing others is intelligence;
knowing yourself is true wisdom.
Mastering others is strength;
mastering yourself is true power.

If you realize that you have enough,
you are truly rich.
If you stay in the center
and embrace death with your whole heart,
you will endure forever.

Verse 33 from the Tao te Ching is all one needs to know about a life lived by Truth. What more pointers or teachings do we need, when we deeply understand this simple direction to find divine power within ?

Turn to yourself. Explore, discover. get to know yourself. What does it mean to master yourself ? To me it means to succeed in letting go. To be able to look at anything that arises, without hesitation or even without flinching. To accept what is, without even making a difference, is the meaning of moving  to the centre. Leave the world of opposites behind and learn to rest in effortless relaxation, in the Now.

And thats all there is to it.

About Michaela

I am a wanderer and a wonderer, like you are. I love our journey and to walk in the company of friends – to learn, experience, share, laugh, cry and above all I simply love this marvelous, magical, mysterious life. I have no plan (cannot believe I am saying this) and my only intention is to be truthful to myself and others.
