A Quote by Shui-ch'ing Tzu on compassion, control, and horses

In the center of compassion is the place of union, Inside the Mysterious Gate is the realm of yao-chi. Lock up the monkey and ape so they cannot run away. Tame the wild horse so that it cannot get out of control. Grasp the opening of the Gate and when cultivation is complete, The beam of golden light will penetrate your entire being.

A Quote by Shui-ch'ing Tzu on fame, fortune, life, love, nature, originality, passion, and taoism

Riches, fame, and fortune are as ephemeral as lightning, The passion of sexual love and childish piety will vanish like flames. Do not crave and be the master of your own life, Cultivate the Tao and there will be gods to help your karma. Do not lose your original nature and the dust of the earthly realm will vanish, The sky will reveal the circular bright moon.

A Quote by Shui-ch'ing Tzu on action, change, intelligence, knowledge, mind, mistakes, purity, spirit, stillness, and taoism

. . . knowledge emerges in (humans). Opposed to knowledge is the spirit. The spirit is formless and is incomprehensible to mundane thoughts. . . . Knowledge is active, mischievous, and intelligent. It changes constantly. Spirit, on the other hand, is the master of humankind. Its origin is in wu-chi. . . . It is never born and it never dies. The spirit tends toward purity and stillness. Knowledge tends toward action and disturbs the mind so that it cannot be still. . . . Recognize the difference between the human mind and the mind of Tao. Do not mistake the human mind for the mind of Tao, and knowledge for the spirit.

The Tao that is coded in words is dead. The teachings of the Tao are so precious and important that they cannot be revealed in the written word.
