The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

I don’t teach the middle way

I don’t teach the middle way,
I teach the total way. Then a balance comes of its own accord,
and then that balance has tremendous beauty and grace.

You have not forced it, it has simply come.
By moving gracefully to the left,
to the right, in the middle,
slowly a balance comes to you
because you remain so unidentified.

When sadness comes,
you know it will pass,
and when happiness comes
you know that will pass, too.

Nothing remains; everything passes by.
The only thing that always abides is your witnessing.

That witnessing brings balance.
That witnessing is balance.
