Loy Ching-Yuen: No use fretting over gold, beauty or fame

Loy Ching-Yuen: No use fretting over gold, beauty or fame
 
Photo: Daoist from early 1900s, China.
 

________________________________________________

 

No use fretting over gold, beauty or fame;
Nurturing these, how can we calm
Our fluttering heart?
Non attachment brings deep truth,
And a truthful nature brings immortality.
Empty your heart,
Sit quietly on a mat.
In meditation we become one with All;
Tao billows like the vapors
In a mountain valley,
And its supernatural power wafts into our soul.


(Loy Ching-Yuen)
