I liked this Taoist quote

Post by cjdevries »

I just read a Taoist quote attributed to Lao Tzu that was on the facebook page of a friend. It said something like: "don't spend too much time worshipping many deities or idols. Take time to rest your mind in its true nature: serenity."
"Please call me by my true names so I can wake up; so the door of my heart can be left open: the door of compassion." -Thich Nhat Hanh

"Ask: what's needed of you" -Akong Rinpoche

Don't remember this from the Dao De Ching. Then again, it's been translated so many times one could probably find a recipe for apple pie if one worked hard enough.
