After spending the last year translating Dao de Jing with my dear friend and good brother, Lu Wenlong, a new “mantra” or phrase has become
Oh thou endless Great Way, broad and flowing in profound tranquility, Where hatred happens, let there now be love; Where weakness occurs, fortitude; Where doubt
Convictions benefit none when they are baseless: hopes for wisdom signify naught without love disclosing a resolute path to the heart
“Love begets love, love knows no rules, this is the same for all.” – Virgil “Love, and then what you will, do.” -St. Augustine
RESOLUTENESS is disciplined DETACHMENT from unnecessary actualities in favor of rigorous ENGAGEMENT with essential possibilities. Be resolute; be liberated!
