By coincidence, or the act of a smiling God, I opened my journal today to the following quote from the Tao Te Ching:
Trying to control the future
is like trying to take the master carpenter's place.
When you handle the master carpenter's tools,
chances are that you'll cut your hand.
This seems to speak to so many things today, including:
- my persistent worries
- my questions concerning God and faith
- my personal need to cultivate patience and obedience
Strange how the world spins sometimes ...
