My favorite quote from my Zen calendar for May was from May 9th:
At the center of your being you have the answer; you know who you are and you know what you want.
I also liked, from yesterday:
Do not conquer the world with force,
For force only causes resistance.
Thorns spring up when an army passes.
Years of misery follow a great victory.
Do only what needs to be done,
Without using violence
And May 8th:
The only Zen you find on tops of mountains is the Zen you bring there
Robert M Pirsig
And finally from May 19:
If you are patient in one moment of anger, you will escape a hundred days of sorrow.
Lao-tzu obviously spoke to me this month. It seems his existence is being debated or when he was alive is being debated. Sometime between 6 and 4 century BC. Even his name seems to be in doubt. He is meant to be the founder of Taoism.
