One With Nature

mountain ridgeline
“Those who know do not talk
Those who talk do not know

Keep your mouth closed
Guard your senses
Temper your sharpness
Simplify your problems
Mask your brightness
Be at one with the dust of the earth

This is primal union.

One who has achieved this state
Is unconcerned with friends and enemies
With good and harm, with honor and disgrace
This is therefore the highest state of humanity.”

Lao Tzu Tao Te Ching

    This is thought provoking. Taking time for introspection I realize that I chatter too much. Better to listen etc. as the quote says.
