“The Paradox of Letting Go”

by in Acupuncture April 7, 2012

In between treatments this morning, I opened the “Tao of Leadership” to read these words:

“By yielding, I endure.
The empty space is filled.
When I give of myself, I become more.
When I feel most destroyed, I am about to grow.
When I desire nothing, a great deal comes to me.”

Powerful in their surrender.

And words of wisdom for recovering perfectionists (ahem!)

The author, John Heider, goes on to say:

“My best work is done when I forget my own point of view; the less I make of myself, the more I am.”
