Some life scribbles

Here are some scribbles from Chuang Tzu’s notebook.
Some of his suggestions are:
Enjoy your work and the changing seasons.
Avoid grand plans; just respond to things as they arise.
Push your own self to one side, as far as you are able, so you can see other people more clearly.
And instead of seeking fulfilment, seek only to be empty.
This will create space for true understanding.
Do not value power but do value peace.
It’s OK to swing between joy and sadness, glory and failure…there’s no great difference between them.
Breathe slowly and listen for the order in the universe.
