Tao habit: Observe and emulate nature
Nature is our best teacher. Observe and emulate how it works.
Greet the sunrise, gaze the sunset; smile with blossoming flowers, and play with dancing droplets in the rain.
Feel the composure of nature.
Nature has no desires of its own, and does not set out to do anything, and yet through it things unfold of their own accord, invigorated by the subtle energy and intelligence of Tao.
Nature does not strive, yet everything is accomplished — despite transient disruptions to put things back on track.
Cultivate a state of being characterized by nature. Radiate with ease, vigilance and poise; respond with aptness, agility and confidence.
Instead of what things ‘should be’, let them be.
When no action is called for, stay tranquil and unruffled. When something has to be done, act without trying — in alignment with the rhythm of the universe.
Tao is great.
Heaven is great.
Earth is great.
Humanity is great.
Within the universe, these are the four great things.
Humanity follows the earth.
Earth follows Heaven.
Heaven follows the Tao.
The Tao follows what is natural.
