A Journey Begins

‘A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step.’

Lao-tzuThe Way of Lao-tzu
Chinese philosopher (604 BC – 531 BC)

[Meditation to me] is a motion amidst absolute stillness. The mind can open to a length beyond itself. Reaching, drifting, feeling, outward…grasping all things, it knows only what it does not sense, and in this sense, it must know all things. For all things are as it is–a stream through which the purity of consciousness flows and wherein the true meaning of your soul resides. You must not seek to grasp, merely to wander amidst yourself and connect to all things. You must not find yourself apart from, but a part of the immensity of true enlightenment. This higher understanding can be used to learn, to focus your mind, but too often [it] befuddles. what we approach is always simple, even though it may seem complex; what we find may startle us, but we must remain clear and free from the causes of distraction.
