A Touch of Zen, The Tao Doesn’t Impose

“The truth of Zen, just a little bit of it, is what turns one’s humdrum life, a life of monotonous, uninspiring commonplaceness, into one of art, full of genuine inner creativity.”

Tao Te Ching: #34.
The Tao Does Not Impose
The Tao is like a flood, Everything it touches is affected. It nurtures all things,
Yet controls nothing.
It brings energy to all,
Yet does not impose upon it. People may think it is small, Because it does not control.
Yet it is great,
Precisely because,
It is unattached to the outcome.
