In response to our first Haiku here on the forum, I'd like to offer a second and third, along with a quote Clear mountain water The life of ten thousand things Like the highest good Contact boundary Clear organismic wisdom Whole morality All things arise from Tao. They are nourished by Virtue. They are formed from matter. They are shaped by environment. Thus the ten thousand things all respect Tao and honour Virtue. Respect of Tao and honour of Virtue are not demanded, But they are in the nature of things. Johanson, G. & Kurtz, R. Grace Unfolding.
