All Things Pass

I enrolled in a class called the Tao of Leadership. It contrasts Eastern philosophy and contemporary Western management and is based in part on the writing of Lao Tzu. This is a beautiful poem about the need to let go and let things emerge differently. When we grasp it is not leadership. It is an illusion.

Radiating Blossom ~ Flowers & Words

All things pass
A sunrise does not last all morning
All things pass
A cloudburst does not last all day
All things pass
Nor a sunset all night
All things pass
What always changes?
 

Earth…sky…thunder…
mountain…water…
wind…fire…lake…

These change
And if these do not last

Do man’s visions last?
Do man’s illusions?

Take things as they come

All things pass

 
~~ Lao-Tzu ~~
