I oft times wonder why us humans have such a need to label everything we see. And even though one will label a thing as this or that the next one of us redefines the thing itself and adds a new label to it. Is it no wonder we humans cannot learn to live in peace and harmony with everyone else? Life is not that complicated I think, rather I believe we do everything in our power to make it become complicated. One person's definition is another's illusion and on and on it goes. I wish to share with you the following quote from the Tao te Ching translated by Stephen Mitchell. It says this:
When people see some things as beautiful,
other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.
Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.
Therefore the Master acts without doing anything, and teaches without saying anything.
Things arise and she lets them come; things disappear and she lets them go.
She has but doesn't possess, acts but doesn't expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever.
My sincerest wish is that each of you wonderful folks find yourself right now in a state of peace, perfect love, joy, and with a sense of oneness for all of humanity. For no matter how any of us define things I feel we cannot ever change the fact that we are One. One with all life. Now all we need do is learn to treat each other with the love and respect we deserve. I leave you now with my love to each one of you, no matter where you are, or what you may be doing at the moment. I would only ask that you take a moment and do something nice for someone right now and become a part of the solution that will eventually rule all life. Perfect life, perfect love, and perfect peace. I am you, you are me, and together we are life!
