peaceful person

“Be like water,

Flowing everywhere

Without striving,

Benefitting all

Without contention.

Live in touch with the earth,

Meditate deeply in the heart.

Be generous in relationships,

Truthful in speech,

Consistent in leadership,

Competent in work,

And timely in actions.

The path of peace

Is forever honorable.”

-excerpt from the Tao Te Ching

This is one of the most beautiful things I’ve read in a long time. Thanks for posting it. Definitely worth putting on my fridge…and holding in my heart.
