The Tao is Tao (92)

#92






                                                            92

                                    Desperate and ignorant people
                                               search for peace
                          on perpetual waves of inconstant emotion
                                      or in the possion of things.
                                          The Taoist sage knows
                                                    peace is
                                              neither a condition,
                                               nor a possession,
                                                nor an emotion.
                                                    Peace is
                                                   emptiness
                                                        and
                                                      silence.
