Here are 10 little guides that will help you live the Way, or Tao.
Make your goal effortless action
avoid unnecessary action or action that is not spontaneous.
eliminate whatever is unnecessary and artificial and appreciate the simple and the apparently ordinary.
only stillness will clear muddy waters and enable you to see the truth.
can you remain unmoving until the right action arises?
love peace and restraint and avoid all unnecessary violence. “do not regard weapons as lovely things. for to think them lovely means to delight in them, and to delight in them means to delight in the slaughter of men.”
in the mundane and the normal. Appreciate the beauty around you and in yourself.
dedicate your life only to that which you find beautiful or fascinating, and thus be true to yourself.
Live in the moment
feel the hand of time sweeping past second by second.
to conduct one’s life according to the Tao, is to conduct one’s life without regrets.
Be compassionate and honor life
only those who are compassionate and treasure life in all its forms can show true bravery and acquire true wisdom.
