“Attain complete clarity of emptiness.
Maintain perfect silence...
Amid the rush of worldly comings and goings,
observe how endings become beginnings,
Every creature eventually returns to its origin.
What was before is again after death.
To return to the origin is to be at rest.
This is called “renewal".
To be renewed is to realise radiant wisdom,
To realise radiant wisdom is to be clear of all obstructions.
If you do not realise radiant wisdom,
you walk blindly off a cliff.
Realising radiant wisdom you become tolerant.
Becoming tolerant your orientation is positive.
Positive orientation is alignment with the Way.
Alignment with the Way yields eternal life.
Be aligned with the Way,
and death of your body will not be your death."
From the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu
