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..With an open mind,
you will be openhearted.
Being openhearted,
you will act wisely..

~Lao Tsu
