igniting nature

Embrace Tao and you will move effortlessly with the world.

At peace, you will generate peace.

The pleasures of life seem emphasized against their backdrop,

But the ubiquitous presence of Tao

Is encompassing to the extent that it goes unnoticed.

It is not seen with eyes.

It is not heard with ears.

It can never be exhausted with use.*

~ Lao Tzu


May we bring attention to that which is not noticed, but ignites us all ☯
