Tao Te Ching is one of my favourite sacred texts, together with the Vigyan Bhairav Tantra and other sacred texts. Here I like to share one of my favourite verses from Tao Te Ching.
If you can empty your mind of all thoughts,
your heart will know the tranquility of peace.
Watch the endless rush of worldly beings,
yet contemplate their return to the Source.
Each being in the universe
returns to the common Source.
To return to the Source is to find peace.
To find peace is to fulfill one's destiny.
Tofulfil one's destiny is to be constant.
To know the constant is to be enlightened.
Not knowing this leads to eternal sorrow.
Being at one with the Tao,
you naturally become impartial.
Impartiality is the highest nobility.
You are no longer concerned about losing your life,
because the Tao is constant
and you are one with the Tao.
