Hello friends around the world, no matter how hard you try you can never be more that what you are, that is a person with a limited time in this existence. Some may seek riches, once they achieve this, they seek honors. Even if they get that, they then become concerned with their legacies. Many people are willing to endure greatly for fame and fortune. Once they have it, they become obsessed with holding on to it. When they do this, they become disconnected from reality; they lose touch with the fact that one day it will all disappear upon their death. Then what? What good is fame, fortune, or a legacy for the dead?

The sweetest harmony is made by the silent song of the Dao. The orchestra of the Dao plays with instruments that we could never comprehend or ever hope to hear play. Listened for it cannot be heard even by the best of ears. The music is cool and hot, loud and soft, fast and slow, incorporating the balance of yin and yang. Every note is pure. If we choose to dance to the music of the Dao, we will never be out of step in life. Even though we cannot hear it, we can be in rhythm with it.

Our friend Master Li informed his students that he had written a poem about the Dao and had placed it in the meditation hall and that he requested that all of the students to read it and study it intently. When they arrived to read it, there was only a blank piece of paper laying on the floor. Everyone must find the Dao in their own way. Everyone must be realize the Dao is inside of them already and that they must discover it and write their own poems with it.
