from Bright-Fey's translation of the Tao, Chapter 64: "1. that which is 2. balanced poised equal 3. will be peaceful and at rest amidst the flow 4. the key is your spirit and its management" How important are balance, poise and equality to my life, art and writing? In this chapter of the Tao the lesson is that I can manage these qualities by infusing "ever-increasing levels into life events as an exercise in shengong, or spirit building." Poise and balance and equal-ness are under my control. Nothing, no one person or thing can do it for me. No more excuses.
