Instructions for inner peace

Resolutely yearn for the Tao and have nothing [else] that binds and enwraps you.
Isolate your body and sleep in solitude.
When stillness arises within the stillness, you will attain the wonders.
When calmness arrives within the calmness, you shall certainly unite with the mysterious.
Now you can act with free abandon, and know what it is to be relaxed and content.
Passing the days in refreshing coolness is the inborn saint.
Quit wishing for divine immortality; quit speaking of it!
Let yourself sit alone on the white lotus flower.

— 王重阳 Wang Zhongyang was born 909 years ago today
