Straight from the nothingness' mouth.

Stressful day. There were seemingly more things to do, all of them imminent, than I could possibly get done, and I'd been up until 2:30 last night after a 14-hour day.

Thoughts were moving fast, listing all the tasks and scrambling for clarity on getting them done. I decided to quickly consult Lao Tzu for an answer. I emptied my mind of thoughts and flipped to a random page in the Hua Hu Ching. Here's what it said:

"...Agitated effort is not necessary. Just be aware of the great Great Tai Chi."

It was calming to the point where getting things done no longer mattered. All was as it was. I settled into myself. It so happened that I got them done anyway.
