Tao – The Way of Harmony

Harmony is made from the threads of pleasure you weave into your everyday experiences. The more these strands intricately embellish the matrix of your daily life, the better. Your work, play, and rest are the trinity of influences that all contribute to the tapestry of your life. By honoring them as equals, you balance the synergy of your body and spirit and restore the natural grace of being a human being.

You are meant to be life enjoying itself; life loving life. Be always generous with the gift of time; hurrying is like a strong wind rattling the doors and windows of your heart. When such a gale howls continually, your harmony is swept away. You are a human being, not a human doing. Even during your work, let hurry be a thing of the past. Leave time to meander during your commitments; enchantment awaits you there.

Your rest, sleep, and introspection sustain your tranquility. Rest gives you time to lie in your own arms and feel who you are.
