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

via The Beauty We Love-- a wonderful poetry blog I follow.

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!
