Tao Te Ching Chapter 16

Tao Te Ching Chapter 16
Rise and fall. We watch and wait and are active and moving and doing and hopefully just being. Wait. relax. Did you ever go to the beach and sit and watch the waves come in. Twilight as the night begins to over take and last vestige of blue in the sky. Watching the water turn darker, watching the sky turn darker. Pin pricks of light coming through the curtain of night and the moon low sort of shimmers on the water. The sound of the waves rise and fall. rythm of the earth. laying on the sand half buried by the last warmth.
Great Island on Cape Cod. about half way down to the point. That is the essence of nature.
