I'm letting it all go

've been reading about Taoism tonight, and thinking about my attitude towards life. In order to follow 'the way of Tao', I'm letting it all go.

Politics. News. Right or wrong.

What I feel or say doesn't matter to how things are going to be. It will be the way it is regardless of my feelings about it.

I've just deleted all my bookmarks that lead to politically-oriented news or news commentary websites that are trying to present their version of right and wrong.

I'm letting it all go.

I've deleted the right-wing blogs. I've deleted the left-wing blogs. I've deleted the sites that present news from all over the place, but ultimately are presenting their view of what's right or wrong.

I'm letting go of the feelings of injustice, helplessness, anger, frustration and sadness. These feelings in me, and expressed on here, are not going to change anything. They're not going to change me, and they're not going to change you. They certainly aren't going to change the world.

I'm going to meditate more. Relax more. Ponder my navel more. Write more articles about letting it all go and just getting on with living life for yourself and for those people around you.

When there is no desire,
all things are at peace.

My feelings are based on desires for change. Change the system, change the attitude, change the perception. I wanted people to change the way they see things, and through change, maybe something good can come as a result.

I'm letting it go. There is only the way things are.

If you want to take control of the world and run it,
I can see that you will not succeed.
The world is a spiritual being,
which can't be improved.
To try to manipulate and control it
is to create disorder.
To try to stabilize it
is to destroy it.
