The Natural Laws

“Before we can shrink anything,
we must first let it expand.
Before we can get rid of something,
we must first let it flourish.
Before we can receive something,
we must first give it away.
They are called the natural laws
of the way things were, are, and will be.

The soft overcomes the hard.
The slow overcomes the fast.
Gentleness and flexibility
bring positive results
that force and rigidity
fail to produce.
Just trust the natural laws
of the mighty Creator.”
(Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, chapter 36)

The Wisdom in Living for Life

The natural laws: everything eventually becomes its opposite—it is just a matter of time.  

Enlightenment is an understanding of this basic law of nature, and knowing how to apply it to your living for life.

Enlightenment lets you see your own folly and futility in your striving and struggling in the world to have everything your way or no way.
