The Tao is Tao (74)

#74





                                                           74

                                        Desire is the fuel of the ego.
                                    You will never find your true self
                                    as long as this fire burns in you.
                                      Even the desire to be virtuous
                                         will corrupt you in the end.
                                True goodness comes from emptiness,
                                    where thinking has stopped and
                                      the fire has been extinguished.
