The Tao of Friday

Chapter IX is about not going too far.  Remember when I said a couple of weeks ago that it was hard work for me to be easy going?  This is easier said than done, especially when I am stressed!

Fill your bowl to the brim
and it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife
and it will blunt.
Chase after money and security
and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people’s approval
and you will be their prisoner.

Do your work, then step back.
The only path to serenity.
