Don’t Meddle with It

Learning builds daily accumulation,
but the practice of the Way of spiritual integration
with the subtle essence of the universe
builds daily simplification.
Simplify and simplify, until all contamination
from relative, contradictory thinking is eliminated.
Then one does nothing, yet nothing is left undone.
One who wins the world
does so by not meddling with it.
One who meddles with the world loses it.

  1. Lovely reminder Eddie. I wish I could live and manifest with such grace. By the way, I saw the Eureka documentary film at the Offshoot film fest in Fayetteville with much of your lovely music. Congrats! You are a very talented soul.

  2. Ooh! That photo looks just like outside my back door tonight! Only problem being that it doesn’t look pretty like that photo 😉 It looks very dark, cold, wet and generally Octoberish!!! I think that explains things quite simplistically and not all meddling in the worldish! lol 😉
