A Journey of a Thousand Miles (Tao Te Ching)

A journey of a thousand miles must begin with a single step.
The softest things in the world overcome the hardest things in the world.
Non-being penetrates that in which there is no space.
Through this I know the advantage of taking no action.
One may know the world without going out of doors.
One may see the way of Heaven without looking through the windows.
The further one goes, the less one knows.
Therefore the sage knows without going about,
Understands without seeing,
And accomplishes without any action.


When you want to put a sparkle in your step

Just do it. Get your journal out and explore possibility x

Your journey has already taken you a long way down the road, and you are no stranger to self inquiry. But now you’re looking for more. .. more intimacy, more connection, more expression, more fulfilment and more passion. And you are willing to find it wherever it comes, be it a life-altering trip to the HImalayas or in that small perfect gesture, that puts a sparkle in your step. You are also willing to find it by whatever means is available. It might be through the people you love, your creative life, your work or service to the world, your prayers and meditations or some great mix of all of those.
