At some point we let slip the absurd conceit that we’re in control of what happens. We are not in control. We’re like leaves being driven across the sky by a mighty wind.
Beginnings are easy. Not so, endings. Every ending is a seminar on surrender.
Listen more, talk less, let it be.
At the heart of Tai Chi Chuan is this principle: Whatever comes, let it come. This is exactly what most of us don’t do. Instead, we re-act, stand against, do again what didn’t work the first time.
All that’s necessary is to want what happens. Herein the flower of peace, the death of desire.
