Eighteen

Exit

the echo chamber.

Enter

the floating tao.

When a nation loses touch

with stillness,

its capacity for imagination

withers.

When there is no peace in the family,

people will say, "family is what matters."

When the nation falls into chaos and

confusion, "patriotism" is born.


True creativity is aroused

as the conscious mind

slackens into surrender.

Begin your apprenticeship with silence.

Find it trustworthy.
