Sunday Night Zen

I found this on disinfo.com. It seemed timely, if only for my state of mind right now, wherever that is.

We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.
We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.
We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it a home.
We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.


                                                 – Lao Tzu

And now the lesson is yours. Happy Monday.
