Profound simplicity and Lao Tzu
Whenever I get asked the silly question if you could have anyone over for dinner dead or alive who would it be I can’t help thinking about Lao Tzu. A Chinese philosopher whose real name no one knows and who lived sometime between 300 and 600 BC. Lao-tzu advocated a life of simplicity, naturalness, and non-interference with the course of natural events in order to attain a harmonious life. If he actually did exist he was certainly an enlightened individual.
I came across this brilliant quote this week.
“Health is the greatest possession. Contentment is the greatest treasure. Confidence is the greatest friend.” -Lao Tzu
