Tao Te Ching Chapter 37-4 No desire
The uncarved block with no name naturally wants to have no desire. (Ch.37)
The uncarved block means Tao, which is true You.
Tao doesn't have a name.
You don't have individuality, in reality.
Tao doesn't have desire.
You don't have desire, in reality.
Do you have an unquenchable desire to control your life, uh?
"Where does this desire come from?"
Forget looking for the answer to this meaningless question.
The more you think, the more resistance you create.
Every time you cannot find an answer, avoid the question as water avoids obstacles.
-Tao does nothing 37-1
-Lords and Kings = You 37-2
-Uncarved block with no name 37-3
-No desire 37-4
-Be still 37-5
-Tao by Matsumoto / Tao Te Ching / Chapter 37
Tao answers your question!
