A Quote by Lao Tzu on dao, tao, way, tao teh ching, lao tzu, sickness, health, ignorance, and knowledge

To realize that our knowledge is ignorance, This is a noble insight. To regard our ignorance as knowledge, This is mental sickness. Only when we are sick of the sickness Shall we cease to be sick. The Sage is not sick, being sick of sickness; This is the secret of health. -ch. 71, Tao Teh Ching, trans. John C. H. Wu, Shambhala, Boston & London, c.1990

A Quote by Lao Tzu on lao tzu, dao, tao, tao teh ching, way, and no action

Without going out of your door, You can know the ways of the world. Without peeping through your window, you can see the Way of Heaven. The farther you go, The less you know. Thus, the Sage knows without travelling, Sees without looking, And achieves without Ado. 

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

A Quote by Mother Lasana on love, divine, divinity, Divine Love, heart, truth, and way

I want you to always make decisions according to your heart, where there is the purest truth. Through your heart you will find the spring of pure innocence and sincerity. It is not important which way you go. It is important to listen to the Divinity, which is everywhere. The love is however the shortest way. The Divine love.

A Quote by Amma on love, way, prayer, and answers

Everyone in the world should sleep without fear
at least for one night, sleep without fear.

Everyone in the world should eat to their fill,
at least for one day, eat to their fill.

There should be one day when there is no violence,
no one is injured, no one is harmed.

All people young and old should serve the poor
and needy, at least for one day serve selflessly.

This is my dream....this is my prayer.
Love is the answer, love is the way.
Love is the answer, love is the way.

A Quote by Lao Tzu on the way, knowledge, nothing, done, undone, add, drop, pursuit, practice, way, lao-tzu, wisdom, joy, simplicity, non-action, harmony, and peace

In the pursuit of Knowledge,
every day something is added.
In the practice of the Way,
every day something is dropped.

Less and less do you need to force things,
until finally you arrive at non-action.
When nothing is done,
nothing is left undone.

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