Tao Te Chingtao
[Translation by William Martin]

52) OUR SUFFERING ENDS

The origin of all that is
can naturally be called “mother of all ”
Finding our mother, we find our true self.
Finding our true self,
our suffering ends.

If we let our thoughts become still
and our needs become few,
we will live in peace.
If we follow our thoughts
and chase after distractions,
we will live in chaos.
Noticing small and ordinary things
is enlightenment.
Treating all beings with kindness
is strength.

Enlightenment is our natural state.
Sitting in meditation we see our hidden suffering,
accept it, lay it down,
and return to peace.

Eckhart Tolletumblr_kunc3zNFEx1qatlijo1_500
"Those who have not found their true wealth, which is the radiant joy of Being and the deep, unshakable peace that comes with it, are beggars, even if they have great material wealth. They are looking outside for scraps of pleasure or fulfillment, for validation, security, or love, while they have a treasure within that not only includes all those things but is infinitely greater than anything the world can offer."
