If you look to others for fulfillment, you will never be truly fulfilled.
We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want.
Manifest plainness,
Embrace simplicity,
Reduce selfishness,
Have few desires.
Be Content with what you have; rejoice in the way things are. When you realize there is nothing lacking, the whole world belongs to you.
The highest good is like water.
Water gives life to the ten thousand things and does not strive.
It flows in places men reject and so is like the way.

In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In business, be competent.
In action, watch the timing.”
In painting be free of constraint and relish rejection,
