The Tao doesn’t come and go.
It is always present everywhere, just like the sky.
If your mind is clouded, you won’t see it, but that doesn’t mean it isn’t there.
All misery is created by the activity of the mind.
Can you let go of words and ideas, attitudes and expectations?
If so, then the Tao will loom into view.
Can you be still and look inside?
If so, then you will see that the truth is always available, always responsive.
