Becoming Complete


What do we need to be complete? To be complete is to have all that is essential; to have the wisdom of the ancients at our fingertips, not searching blindly for answers but understanding the questions. It is to live and breathe Tao twenty four hours a day, seven days a week, three hundred and sixty five days a year.

Being complete is to do, not say; to be higher by being lower; to be great by not aiming for greatness. The essential is found in the words of the Tao Te Ching; in the way the sun rises over the ocean; the way it sets unselfishly. It is found in the way that honorable moon waxes and wanes, changing form but always being itself; the way ocean tides come in and go out always under control.


We cannot be whole with Tao if we are incomplete. Seek what you are missing and work towards it. Heaven exists when all pieces of puzzle come together; when sun kisses horizon good-bye and hello simultaneously.
