If it wasn't funny,
it wouldn't be the floating tao.
Here's what's so funny:
The path into the light can feel dark and
the way forward seems to go backward,
the easy way feels difficult.
The virtue of stillness can at times
feel like lazy avoidance.
The greatest voice is the silent one.
The greatest talent seems to produce
The greatest beauty, invisible.
Just as a cup is only useful when empty;
when there is enough space
to receive it.
