Tao Te Ching Chapter 72-2 Not satisfied?
If they are not tired of where they stay, they are not satisfied with where they live. (Ch.72)
"I am sick and tired of this world!"
Would you like to cry it out once in a while?
Lao Tzu might be happy for you.
Here he is giving you a precious piece of advice:
When you are satisfied with something, you feel "you are sick and tired of it".
This sensation of "being tired" is a good sign that you are detached from the world and not engaged.
How can you be engaged to the world while accepting it as a catalyst!
In other words, no matter how you feel about this catalytic world, you are in fact satisfied.
Don't judge the level of your satisfaction.
-Big's fear 72-1
-Not satisfied? 72-2
-Know yourself 72-4
-Love yourself 72-5
-Take it 72-6
