Lao Tzu in Modern Society

“To the mind that is still, the whole universe surrenders.”
– Lao Tzu

This practically implies — NO THOUGHT — NO MIND – The BODY of FLESH is the SELF — and life is born from the Physical as per the Gospel of Thomas

“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.”

– Lao Tzu

Having enough is to have what is best for all equally from birth to death. To be rich while others are poor by implication is evidence that one do not know yourself and have not mastered yourself. Why should those that have no self mastery have any say in how life on earth is lived?

“The journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.”
― Lao Tzu

This is the journey of self correction and to find the truth of what man became as the mind –thus–the journey is step by step – breath by breath –till it is done — nothing more can be done but what is done in one breath at a time — to keep walking till self is in fact one and equal as life and the illusion of consciousness is no more. where to begin is irrelevant as the step right here, the breath right here is the beginning of the Journey To Life.

“Those who know do not speak. Those who speak do not know.”
― Lao Tzu

This is vital to realize — as to the consequence to words as the living of self in all relationships, and when this is not what is best as life as equal, it is causing consequence that is unnecessary, but those that speak do not know, and thus they speak, lots of absolute crap, till life itself is the crap. Make sure each word is worth living –not for yourself alone, but for all being throughout all time, then one is enlightened and will not stop till all see the light of equality and oneness as that which is best for all life always. The arrogant fools say that Lao here indicate one should be silent — how foolish –you are a word on a living word and if you are no word, you will not exist. Live Words as Worthy in this World! Speak only when you know your words result in what is Best for all Life always!

“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”
― Lao Tzu

This is the KEY to self Change –first to let go –to let the Ego go –to stop — to end what you are, then –you may be able to birth yourself as life –this is complete death of the illusionary self, the cultivated self the learned self , the society self, the family self, the money self, the sex self, all must go in every way –and life might be, if one is true to what is best for all life always as equal to life –as naturally life, as Life Normal – the Living Breath breathing the Living Word on the Living World as the Dust made fleSh as the Self, where no mind exist as separated self interest seeking imaginary foolfillment.

“The truth is not always beautiful, nor beautiful words the truth.”
― Lao Tzu

This is IMPORTANT to Grasp — the world as it exist NOW is the TRUTH of the INNER HUMAN as ONE — UNLESS we change who we are to be reflected as THIS WORLD as what is Best for ALL LIFE, the MESS will continue!! — There is NO BETTER LIFE HEREAFTER as HERE creates HEREAFTER –As Below so ABOVE!! the TRUTH HURTS!

Bernard Poolman

 

 

“Time is a created thing. To say ‘I don’t have time,’ is like saying, ‘I don’t want to.”
― Lao Tzu

This should solve it for all those that do not find time to change the world to what is best for all life.

Bernard Poolman

 

 

“Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.”
― Lao Tzu

This must be understood in the time frame it was written –many thousands of years ago – before the age of self interest where inequality is justified. This implies that the earth provide enough for all equally and thus lack only exist because we treat each other unequal and therefore no one has a place in the world unless they have money to buy it– at the moment life is being stolen by clever words that is not alive as it is not equal to life — to be the living word one must live the words in ways that support all life equally breath by breath

“Care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner.”
― Lao Tzu

Strange enough parents teach children to worry about what other people think and turn the children into prisoners of illusion

Bernard Poolman

 

 

“Stop thinking, and end your problems.”
― Lao Tzu

Yes –it has always been the solution, but nowadays thinking is glorified as CONsciousness and Energy and Feeling as part of a CONsumer system that devours all it can and refuse to give life to life

Bernard Poolman

 

 

“Do you have the patience to wait until your mud settles and the water is clear?”
― Lao Tzu

Self Forgiveness with Self Honesty is how one clear your water till it is crystal clear. Then even mudslinging will not be muddle your water and the self will reflect life clearly as what is best for all life always
