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.

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 […]

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.

Whilst on a Trip

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 […]

It Happened Completely by Surprise

It Happened Completely by Surprise It happened completely out of the blue, the yelp, the scream. “Help me, help me”. It was a woman’s screech. I got out of the van fast as these old bones could respond to my wishful thinking. “Hamish.” What had happened? I called him again. “Hamish.” I was startled and […]

Wise is the Man

Wise is the Man Wise is the man who embraces simplicity For he enjoys the sights and sounds that come his way Free from unnecessary attachments He welcomes the arrival of new experiences But lets them go just as easily And without a care Thus he is able to wander joyously through life Having no […]

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.
