Harmonious Flow

The true Buddha is in the home. The true Dao is in everyday functions.  If you maintain an honest heart, a harmonious manner, a pleasant countenance, and graceful words with your father, mother, brothers, and sisters, and flow with them, each in turn, in wholehearted accord of body and spirit, then isn’t this ten thousand times better than breath control and introspection?
-Vegetable Root Discourse, Wisdom from Ming China on Life & Living translated by Robert Aitken
