what you do is what you are

what you do is what you are

What You Do is What You Are is a very deep and profound statement from stanza 40 “Hua Hu Ching” the Unknown Teachings of Lao Tzu, translated by Brian Walker.

At first glance this seems like a trivial statement, yet when you contemplate further you realize that how you do life, no matter what your position, determines what you are developmentally.

It is part of cosmic law that what you say and do determines what happens in your life……  He cultivates himself to accord (with this law) bringing moderation to his actions and clarity to his mind….. His days are spent drinking in serenity and breathing out contentment.
