Walking on Water

Walking on Water It has been some time since this little incident took place. But it is worth remembering. Joshua and his grandson were walking along the banks of the Murray in South Australia. It was a beautiful warm day in late spring. As they walked, they, in their own manner were allowing their minds […]

Taking Care

Taking Care Seeking to attain wisdom The wise man takes care of his human body Perfecting within himself his capabilities from excess Cleansing both his will and thought Not straying into the paths of self-indulgence His mind and senses utterly serene Impervious to the influences of every sort of hostility Welcoming life and death as […]

Taoism and its resemblance to Buddhism

Taoism and its resemblance to Buddhism. Taoism resembles Buddhism in being entirely free from dogma. Nevertheless, both these religions demand faith, not in particular principles, for then dogma would be present but in the existence of a higher good, and a higher state of being to which it is possible for us all to attain.

It invades the land

    It invades the land   It invades the land From the vast western sea And churns the red dust with such an intensity That every crevice, crack and space in its path is penetrated Nothing escapes its domination Though times change it is always there Sometimes its immense power is a curse For […]

Country Blokes Don’t Say Much

They often feel somewhat victimised by our fanciful indulgences that are so often just an excursion into […]

Whilst on a Trip

Whilst on a Trip Whilst on a trip to the remoter northern regions of Western Australia I became very attached to a very kindly old Taoist monk. He was camped on the edge of the rest centre, away from other people and behind some shady bushes and trees where it was cool and private. We […]

Conflict

Conflict.   Always do your best to avoid conflicts. Don’t look for confrontations that are likely to end in bad feelings and hostilities. This includes supposed lively conversations that you may think are exciting and stimulating but in truth only create a festering resentment for challenging someone else’s concepts. It is a much better idea […]

Protecting Your Good Name

Protecting Your Good Name   Neither the protecting of your good name, fame, or your status in society or the high regard in which you are thought off, on the one hand, nor the blame, bad reputation nor failure to attain high rewards on the other, are worth a moment’s care. This understanding guarantees stress […]

At a Time

At a Time   At a time when the world searched for meaning many looked to the blossoming of culture in the arts. It was a time when the new rich billionaires sought justification for their greed and in some cases their exploitation to acquire their fortunes. Many became philanthropists Some even formed a worldwide […]
