Quote 7

May 9, 2007

Every departure from the Tao contaminates one’s spirit.
Anger is a departure, resistance a departure, selfabsorbtion a departure.
Over many lifetimes the burden of contamination can become great.
There is only one way to cleanse oneself of these contaminations, & that is to practice virtue.
What is meant by this?
To practice virtue is to selflessly offer assistance to others, giving without limitation ones time,
abilities & possessions in service, whenever & wherever need, without
prejudice concerning the identity of those in need.
If your willingness to give blessings is limited, so also is your ability to receive them.
This is the subtle operation of the Tao.

I can not give you the formula for success,
but I can give you the formula for failure…
which is: Try to please everybody.
