* Tao Wisdom ☯ – Patience

wait for water to clear


Like muddy water with mystery below the surface.

Can you wait until the mud settles and the way becomes clear?

Can you be patient enough to hold off acting until you are ready?*

~ Lao Tzu


Let us all listen out for that right time and trust it will appear.

  1. The pathway to clarity is how I read this. Once again, profoundly wise advice. Too many years ago for me to remember who it was that used the phrase that echoes this ancient saying. But the phrase has never left me. About giving something “a coating or two of thought”.

    • I agree Kath. It takes practice to find our way into this natural state of being. And acknowledging that trying to control everything is not the natural way after all! ❤️
