QotD: Lao Tzu on Being

There is no need to run outside for better seeing...

Rather abide a the center of your being.

For the more you leave it the less you learn.

Search your heart and see...

The way to do is to be.

--Lao Tzu

Without going outside. you may know the whole world.
Without looking out the window, you may know the ways of heaven.
The farther you go, the less you know.

Thus the sage knows without traveling;
he sees without looking;
he works without doing.
