“Act without doing; work without effort.” – Tao te Ching by Chinese philosopher Lao-Tzu
Did you ever push too hard only to have the metaphorical swing come back and hit you dead-on in the chin? Liken this to the self-inflicted searches for insight and inspiration from a bag of stale fortune cookies. Sometimes you’ve just got to let the meaning find you. Forcing profundity or comedy is like putting spoiled cream in your long awaited morning cup of coffee. It tastes like crap… and wastes a perfectly good setup. Be you. Be open. And sip slowly.
