Fall back, to find the way on.
Bend with the wind, to stay standing.
Empty out, to be filled.
Accept wear and aging, to see through young eyes.
Have exactly what you need, and be rich.
Hoard and be greedy, to feel useless and baffled.
Be wise, and understand wholeness.
Moving this way
You show others.
Never justify or defend this balance,
it will be obvious to those who will see.
No need to get praise,
the wise will notice.
the wise just do,
without snapping or complaining or blaming.
Hard to quarrel with those who shun anger.
The way ahead is not always the way through.
We have to give up everything,
And be with everything.
Each of us the center of the universe.
Ha-ha. A ditch or sunk fence serving the purpose of a hedge without breaking the prospect.
