action

A Quote by Lao Tzu on tao, mastery, and action

The gentlest thing in the world
overcomes the hardest thing in the world.
That which has no substance
enters where there is no space.
This shows the value of non-action.

Teaching without words,
performing without actions:
that is the Master's way.

Lao Tzu (c.604 - 531 B.C.)

A Quote by Lao Tzu on tao, action, teaching, mastery, being, and beauty

When people see some things as beautiful,
other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.

Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.

Therefore the Master
acts without doing anything
and teaches without saying anything.
Things arise and she lets them come;
things disappear and she lets them go.
She has but doesn't possess,
acts but doesn't expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on happiness, action, being, and doing

In the true order of things one does not do something in order to be happy—one is happy and, hence, does something. One does not do some things in order to be compassionate, one is compassionate and, hence, acts in a certain way.

A Quote by Neale Donald Walsch on choice, good, action, and love

For centuries you have been taught that love-sponsored action arises out of the choice to be, do, and have whatever produces the highest good for another. Yet I tell you this: the highest choice is that which produces the highest good for you.

And that is the Do-it-here-now philosophy.

Is my real opportunity
To prove my genuine love
For God and God alone.

A Quote by Sri Chinmoy on meditation, service, action, dedication, and god

If you are already an awakened soul,
Then you must realise
That God has already given you
A supreme task to perform:
He wants you to work
For His Vision’s world-blossoms.

A Quote by Lois McMaster Bujold on consequence, action, want, and create

His mother had often said, When you choose an action, you choose the consequences of that action.  She had emphasized the corollary of this axiom even more vehemently: when you desired a consequence you had damned well better take the action that would create it.
