Random Tao of the Day

Forty-Five

Great accomplishment seems imperfect,
Yet it does not outlive its usefulness.
Great fullness seems empty,
Yet it cannot be exhausted.

Great straightness seems twisted.
Great intelligence seems stupid.
Great eloquence seems awkward.

Movement overcomes cold.
Stillness overcomes heat.
Stillness and tranquillity restore order in the universe.

Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu

I love to open the Tao to a random page, it always has lessons to share.

January is turning out to be a month of goodbyes, endings and starting over. I am taking a new direction with work one I hope will enable me to have a semblance of a work life balance.
