“If you let cloudy water settle
It will become clear
If you let your upset mind settle
Your course will also become clear.”
Jack Kornfield’s “Buddha’s Little Instruction Book
How often have I rushed ahead, not trusting that life and my situations will balance and settle in the right time?
How often do I think I know better and stubbornly or impatiently forge ahead, not listening or waiting for clarity?
Who can be still until their mud settles?
And the water is cleared by itself?
Can you remain tranquil until right action occurs by itself?
The Master doesn’t seek fulfillment.
For only those who are not full, are able to be used,
which brings the feeling of completeness.
Tao Te Ching Lao Tzu Chapter 14
