I constantly have three treasures;
Hold on to them and treasure them.
The first is compassion;
The second is frugality;
And the third is not presuming to be at the forefront in the world.
[excerpt from Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu]
Let go of the past; you are where are you. Lay no worries for the future; you can only do what you can do. Come to a gentle place where you are able to rest your heart in the present. This is all we have.
