Chuang-Tzu on going with the flow. Predates Tao Te Ching




Mysteriously, Wonderfully,

I bid Farewell to what Goes,

I Greet what Comes;

for what comes cannot be denied,

and what goes cannot be detained.


~ Chuang-Tzu


from The Complete Works of Zhuangzi

I find so much wisdom in this -- mysteriously, wonderfully I say goodbye to what goes, I greet whatever is next.


What a beautiful way to describe impermanence, which is permanent!
