Sixty-One

Receptive overcomes

restless,

stillness overcomes

busy.

Human beings are like the sea.

Their power comes from lying low.

Breathing slow,

one accesses the rich source

at the heart of

whole being.

Timeless, effortless,

the floating tao never fails.

Ever available to the changing winds

of playful chance,

the floating tao cleanses us with

Pure Presence

in the midst of our moving

and being moved.

The soulful ones

rest mightily

and so,

are reborn.

We who abide in the flow

may temporarily dissolve,

but we are not

gone.
