All you have to do is look around and see that decay and renewal is a simple fact of life. It’s so simple that most people can’t grasp it. You can’t have renewal all the time, things can’t stay the way they are. We fall into decay just like all things in nature. Trees once tall and mighty fall to the ground. There’s just no avoiding it no matter how much you kid yourself. You might be able to fool the mirror, but you don’t fool Father Time. If you don’t accept that, you’re in for a lot of suffering when the inevitable occurs.

Most of the true geniuses in life have been misunderstood. People thought they were crazy, eccentrics that didn’t belong, and they didn’t belong, at least to the common crowd. That’s because they have such a profound understanding of things, other people just can’t relate. In a world where common sense is getting uncommon, how can that group appreciate real understanding? I understand what I want out of life and don’t care whether that conforms to somebody else’s ideas. Now I’m not calling myself a genius, just somebody who finds their own way regardless of the ramifications. Find your own path and don't let others drag you down theirs.

Funny thing about that Dao, it’s everywhere, but nowhere. You can’t touch it, you can’t hear it, you can’t find it if you are looking too hard for it, yet it’s always there. It’s kind of like that friend or relative that owes you money. You can never find them, but unlike them, the Dao doesn’t owe you anything. You owe everything to the Dao and it doesn’t take American Express. You get what is coming and that’s it. There’s no IOU’s. Some people think they are owed something or entitled to something and when they don’t get that something, they complain.
