This Sense of Nature

This sense of nature Words cannot express this sense of nature and its abundant charm and there are very few who acquiring modern culture retain it. It is gradually disappearing from the world. Just as the old delicately sensuous, naive and picturesque type of beauty is. That perfection of naturalness is rapidly vanishing everywhere and […]

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 […]

Limited Attributes

Limited Attributes   With a finite amount of talent there are those who force their minds and bodies for the sake of money or glory to over extend themselves thereby only to do themselves harm. Instead of demonstrating restraint in the use of one’s powers their peace of mind is replaced by an emphasis on […]

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

Country Blokes Don’t Say Much   I first saw her a few weeks ago. She was young, maybe about twelve, darker than most and wearing a teal coloured smock in the usual fashion of maybe five sizes too big. She gave me a big smile and a young girl’s wave and ran off. In 1849 […]

Wishful Thinking

Wishful Thinking.   Wishful thinking can be very upsetting to others. It may remind them of things that they feel they could have and are drawn into the pattern that they can have more than they have earned. 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 […]

Achievement

Achievement   A man of great attainment is serene, Free from idle thoughts and cares The sky is his roof, And mortality is his vehicle He drives the seasons as his horses. Ascending through the clouds, He soars beyond all known galaxies, Continually pressing forward, Mind unclouded by inordinate desires, He passes to the heavenly […]

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 […]
