A Quote by Lao Tzu on awareness, clarity, meditation, mind, silence, simplicity, present, world, and taoism

Do you think that you can clear your mind by sitting constantly in silent meditation? This makes your mind narrow, not clear. Integral awareness is fluid and adaptable, present in all places and at all times. That is true meditation. . . . The Tao is clear and simple, and it doesn't avoid the world.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on acting, business, design, difficulty, kindness, and taoism

Acting without design, occupying oneself without making a business of it, finding the great in what is small and the many in the few, repaying injury with kindness, effecting difficult things while they are easy, and managing great things in their beginnings; this is the method of Tao.
