Living in Simplicity

 

The Tao does nothing,
but leaves nothing undone.
 
If powerful men
could center themselves in it,
the whole world would be transformed
by itself, in its natural rhythms.
 
When life is simple,
pretenses fall away;
our essential natures shine through.
 
By not wanting, there is calm,
and the world will straighten itself.
When there is silence,
one finds the anchor of the universe within oneself.
 
 
~37th Verse of the Tao Te Ching
(translated by Dr. Wayne Dyer)
