Thirty-Eight

People who live in harmony

see the reality

beneath the words,

not only what is on the surface.


Having the courage to reject

society's addictions

to the plastic and the artificial,

a few wise ones

prefer to feel their own feelings.


When popular opinions

and threadbare narratives

are abandoned,

natural goodness

gradually re-emerges.


People who live in harmony

don't overthink it.

That's how you live in harmony.
