letting go

Sometimes we try too hard, and then life has a way of revealing what we need

The early sun dissolves the mist
that has covered the mountain.

All night I have listened to the wise,
yet failed to learn.

Dimly, darkly, the eternal pines
rise without effort from the vanishing fog.

Xue Tao, c770–832, Chinese poet
