"Whatever is to be made to fall,
first must be raised.
If you want to become whole,
let yourself become broken.
If you want to become straight,
let yourself become twisted.
If you want to become full,
let yourself become empty."
~ Lao Tsu - The Tao
Keep breathing, allow your body and stick to the truth.
Deep inside refuse to run. Longing and loss and fear of the future gives way to reality and the self.
For the liberation we seek is revealed not in victory, not when we prevail but when we find ourselves defeated.
See, all things howsoever they flourish, return to the source from which they grew. For the timeless net has been cast wide, coarse are its meshes, yet nothing slips through.
Facing all fears and the loss of all, the illusory difference between life and death, between being and non-being dissolved; and I have emerged into the silent bliss of reality.
