A Quote by Kenneth Walker on tao

in

Abgesehen von der Tatsache, daß Träume of präkognitiv sind, weisen sie auch noch andere interessante Züge auf. Sie können sehr künstlerischer Natur sein, worauf Ouspensky schon vor langer Zeit aufmerksam gemacht hat. Er schrieb, daß er, als er seine Träume studierte, "einen Künstler" in sich selbst entdeckte, "der manchmal sehr naiv und manchmal äußerst differenziert war, der an diesen Träumen arbeitete und sie aus Materialien schuf, die er besaß, aber im Wachzustand nicht voll auszunützen verstand".

A Quote by j. Krishnamurti on tao

in

You can only hear clearly when you sit quietly, when you give your attention.
Nor can you have order if you are not free to watch, if you are not free to listen, if you are not free to be considerate. This problem of freedom and order is one of the most difficult and urgent problems in life. It is a very complex problem. It needs to be thought over much more than mathematics, geography, or history.

A Quote by Alan Watts on tao

in

Das ursprüngliche Ideal des Mönches (bikkhu) war ein sehr hohes; in sozialer Hinsicht hatte er die wichtigste Aufgabe, Führer, Weiser und Freund der Volksgemeinschaft zu sein. Zum Entgelt dafür wurde er mit Nahrungsmitteln beschenkt. Da die buddhistischen Grundsätze ihm die höchste Ehrfurcht vor allen Dingen dieser Welt zur Pflicht machten, war er bemüht, alles, was man ihm gab, bis zum äußersten zu nutzen, so daß nichts der Verschwendung heimfiel.

Alan Watts (1915 - 1973)

A Quote by Lao Tzu on tao, living, soft, yielding, flexible, stiff, rigid, death, and overcome

The living are soft and yielding;
the dead are rigid and stiff.
Living plants are flexible and tender;
the dead are brittle and dry.

Those who are stiff and rigid
are the disciple of death.
Those who are soft and yielding
are the disciples of life.

The rigid and stiff will be broken.
The soft and yielding will overcome.

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

A Quote by Lao Tzu on tao, words, understanding, expectations, contain, ambitions, mysterious, darkness heaven, concepts, earth, ten thousand things, names, boundaries, subtle, and heart

Tao is beyond words and beyond understanding. Words may be used to speak of it, but they cannot contain it. Tao existed before words and names, before heaven and earth, before the ten thousand things. It is the unlimited father and mother of all limited things. Therefore, to see beyond boundaries to the subtle heart of things, dispense with names, with concepts, with expectations and ambitions and differences. Tao and its many manifestations arise from the same source: subtle wonder within mysterious darkness. This is the beginning of all understanding.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on chanting, holy, listening, spiritual, superficialities, murmur, stream, prayer, tao, beads, sacred, oneness, breathing, and

Chanting is no more holy than listening to the murmur of a stream, counting prayer beads no more sacred than simply breathing. . . . If you wish to attain oneness with the Tao, don't get caught up in spiritual superficialities.

A Quote by Langya on tao, detachment, and peace

Just think of the trees: They let the birds perch and fly, with no intention to call them when they come and no longing for their return when they fly away. If people's hearts can be like the trees, they will not be off the Way.
