The Misguided Monk

There is a lot of truth in this short video. It is very easy to become so involved in our own ‘development’ that we lose sight of the bigger picture. Without compassion we are nothing. In the Tao Te Ching, Lao Tsu said:

Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts, you return to the source of being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world

…… an important message to remember! Enjoy the video.

Our thanks to the wonderful animation work of Tom Long.
