Till your mud settles

hands holding flowerDo you have the patience to wait till your mud settles and the water is clear?

Can you remain unmoving
till the right action arises by itself?
The Master doesn’t seek fulfillment.
Not seeking, not expecting,
she is present, and can welcome all things.

-Lao Tzu, trans. by Stephen Mitchell
