Lao tzu ( tao te chinh )( dao de jing ) a very famous philosopher says =
If you can empty your mind of all thoughts
your heart will embrace the tranquility of peace.
Watch the workings of all of creation,
but contemplate their return to the source.
All creatures in the universe
return to the point where they began.
Returning to the source is tranquility
because we submit to Heavens mandate.
Returning to Heavens mandate is called being constant.
Knowing the constant is called ‘enlightenment’.
Not knowing the constant is the source of evil deeds
because we have no roots.
By knowing the constant we can accept things as they are.
By accepting things as they are, we become impartial.
By being impartial, we become one with Heaven.
By being one with Heaven, we become one with Tao.
Being one with Tao, we are no longer concerned about
loosing our life because we know the Tao is constant
and we are one with Tao.
I’m here to learn like you.
i have read this before and got from it the following (in crude terms):
don’t let the bullsh*t bother you…it is just bullsh*t and doesn’t matter in the grand scheme of things…just know yourself…be okay with the things you do in life and you will not regret which is one thing that causes people to fear death…you will not have those things undone that people fear death have…you will be calm within yourself
