When they lose their sense of awe,
people turn to religion.
When they no longer trust themselves,
they begin to depend upon authority.
Chapter 72 – Tao Te Ching
Woe to you, scribes and Pharisees, hypocrites!
For you clean the outside of the cup and of the plate,
but inside they are full of greed and self-indulgence.
You blind Pharisee! First clean the inside of the cup,
so that the outside also may become clean.
In stillness awaken to the wonder of Creation.
You are part of that wonder.
