The journey of a 1000 miles begins with a single step

Empty yourself of everything

 Empty yourself of everything.
Let the mind become still.
The ten thousand things rise and fall
while the Self watches their return.
They grow and flourish
and then return to the Source.
Returning to the Source is stillness,
which is the way of Nature.
~Lao Tsu
Tao Te Ching, Verse 16

  1. Yes, we can be empty, and yes we can be filled with ten thousand things.
    Allowing, noticing, breathing, all these things that are return to not being.
