Celebrating Life

Emptiness is followed by intoxicating beauty only to return to even deeper emptiness where everything is being pulled out of me.  In this weakness I give myself up and lose it all, my ego and everything I know.

I am empty, it’s a good thing, but it sure doesn’t feel good because the mind wants to know where it stands.  The mind is always desiring for something special to happen.  I am ok with nothing, that's when I see abundance, another paradox.

I never tell my son what to do.  I want nothing from him.  Wanting something from another is abuse.
If you want to govern the people,
you must place yourself below them.
If you want to lead the people,
you must learn how to follow them.
  ~Tao Te Ching (66)
