The Sage Surrenders…

The Sage surrenders

to that which arises,

moment to moment.

Knowing her ultimate nature

she clings to nothing,

no illusions of the mind,

no resistances in the body.

She does not think about her actions,

they flow from the essence of her being,

she holds nothing back

living as if she has already embraced

her passage from this life.

– Lao Zi,  Dao De Jing,  #50
