Cultivate Skill

 Stand still, and observe all moving things,
 don’t worry, just watch while other people hurry;
 only then may you know the joy transcendence brings.
 When you’re busy, know how to feel at ease;
 surrounded by clamour, learn to be still.
 You may live a good, long life once you master this skill.
-Vegetable Root Discourse, translated by Jan W. Walls
