Taoist and Buddhist Tweets 60


And every moment,
every action,
every act,
every sight of the eye,
sound of the ear,
sense of the heart,
is only the truth.

Then you need no time, no place to be or go,
nothing to seek and nothing missing.

The man at prayer,
the woman singing praise,
are not wrong in your eyes
but as filled with truth
as the moo of a cow
and the wind in the trees,
no more or less.

The grass under your feet is a great
as the space above your head
and both contain each other as the universe contains itself
and you are all things.

Breathing, you are dead.
Living you decay.
As dust you feed life.
As new life you return to life.
