The Living Tao

excerpt from Poem 4

There is nothing to consider
All things are as one
It does not matter what you think you should do
All things are already done

All things are already done and nothing needs to be desired. Yet we continue to seek things we desire believing they are lacking in our lives. This reasoning is something that we put into our own heads. Things we force ourselves to attain can never be correct because the will needs to be constantly guarded against weakness. Forcing ourselves to attain things can never be correct regardless of appearance. People intuitively know this. Why not know instead that you have everything you want and enjoy the appearance of these things in your life by your acceptance of them as your reality? Because if you do that you will be letting go of your own self-imposed thoughts and you will think you are not in control.
