' Sitting and Forgetting '...

From the Taoist text:


"He whose house is peaceful and stable will emit the heavenly light.”

The “house” is the mind.

The “heavenly light” is the emergence of wisdom.

The mind is the vessel of the Tao.

If the “house” is empty and calm to the utmost, the Tao will reside there and wisdom will emerge.

Wisdom comes from your original nature.

It is not something that comes to exist just now.

This is why it is called the “heavenly light.”
