From the slightly abridged Tao Te Ching:

“For governing a country well,┬áthere is nothing better than moderation.

The mark of moderation is freedom from one’s own ideas.

Tolerant like the sky, all-pervading like sunlight, firm like a mountain, supple as a tree in wind.

No destination in mind, she makes use of anything life happens to bring her way.

Nothing is impossible; because she has let go, she can care for the people’s welfare as a mother cares for her child.”

Perhaps this is Life’s call to the arms of wisdom.

It is diving into one's heart to find stories, characters, ideas. That mysterious within holds wonders worth the dig. Like Walt Whitman said: "I am large. I contain multitudes."
