Lao Tzu’s Quotes that tell a lot about our Life

if you correct your mind the rest of your life will fall into place nature does not hurry yet everything is accomplished care about what other people think and you will always be their prisoner life and death are one thread the same line viewed from different sides the truth is not always beautiful nor beautiful words the truth who acts in stillness finds stillness in his life [Music] i have just three things to teach simplicity patience compassion these three are your greatest treasures new beginnings are often disguised as painful endings being deeply loved by someone gives you strength while loving someone deeply gives you courage life is a series of natural and spontaneous changes don't resist them that only creates sorrow let reality be reality let things flow naturally forward in whatever way they like he who is contented is rich by letting it go it all gets done the world is won by those who let it go but when you try and try the world is beyond the winning love is a decision not an emotion if you are depressed you are living in the past if you are anxious you are living in the future if you are at peace you are living in the present be content with what you have rejoice in the way things are when you realize there's nothing lacking the whole world belongs to you health is the greatest possession contentment is the greatest treasure confidence is the greatest friend non-being is the greatest joy when you are content to be simply yourself and don't compare or compete everyone will respect you kindness in words creates confidence kindness and thinking creates profoundness kindness in giving creates love a leader is best when people barely know he exists when his work is done his aim fulfilled they will say we did it ourselves a man with outward courage dares to die a man with inner courage dares to live when i let go of what i am i become what i might be for the wise man looks into space and he knows there is no limited dimensions time is a created thing to say i don't have time is like saying i don't want to at the center of your being you have to answer you know who you are and you know what you want the key to growth is in the introduction of higher dimensions of consciousness into our awareness if you would take you must first give this is the beginning of intelligence surrender your self-interests love others as much as you love yourself then you can be entrusted with all things under heaven the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step silence is a source of great strength give a man a fish and you feed him for a day teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime those who know do not speak those who speak do not know the words of truth are always paradoxical knowing others is wisdom knowing yourself is enlightenment if you try to change it you will ruin it try to hold it and you will lose it if you want to know me look inside your heart doing nothing is better than being busy doing nothing when the student is ready the teacher will appear when the student is truly ready the teacher will disappear a good traveler has no fixed plans and is not intent on arriving do the difficult things while they are easy and do the great things while they are still small the best fighter is never angry do you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear can you remain unmoving till the right action arises by itself knowledge is a treasure but practice is the key to it there is no greater danger than underestimating your opponent success is as dangerous as failure hope is as hollow as fear if i had just a little bit of wisdom i should walk the great path and fear only straying from it what is a good man but a bad man's teacher what is a bad man but a good man's job nothing is softer or more flexible than water yet nothing can resist it it is better to leave a vessel unfilled than to attempt to carry it when it is full the master dwells in the substantial and not in the superficial rests in the fruit and not in the flower the best of all leaders is the one who helps people so that eventually they don't need him if we could renounce our sageness and discard our wisdom it would be better for the people a hundredfold when there is silence one finds the anchor of the universe within oneself the soft overcomes the hard and the weak the strong simplicity has no name is free of desires being free of desires it is tranquil and the world will be at peace of its own accord to avoid disappointment know what is sufficient to avoid trouble know when to stop if you are able to do this you will last a long time stop leaving and you will arrive stop searching and you will see stop running away and you will be found in the end the treasure of life is missed by those who hold on and gained by those who let go the snow goose need not bathe to make itself white neither need you do anything but be yourself indwelling live close to the ground in thinking keep to the simple in conflict be fair and generous in governing don't try to control in work do what you enjoy in family life be completely present it is better to do one's own duty however defective it may be than to follow the duty of another however well one may perform it he who does his duty as his own nature reveals it never sins
