Quote for Today: Zhuangzi

I’ve heard my teacher say, where there are machines, there are bound to be machine worries; where there are machine worries, there are bound to be machine hearts. With a machine heart in your breast, you’ve spoiled what was pure and simple; and without the pure and simple, the life of the spirit knows no rest.
Zhuangzi, The Complete Works of Zhuangzi

    • Thanks! All that is old becomes new again. This is from the Burton Watson translation of Zhuangzi. The image speaks as well. I think of these quote/image pairings as duets or dialogues. I put them together and look for synchronicity. Sometimes they go in new directions.
