This page is dedicated to Zhuangzi (Zhuang Zhou) and his 33-chapter work, the Zhuangzi. If you relax and become very still while taking in these lectures and readings, you can sense your internal connection with “Heaven and Earth.” Don’t try to interpret or consciously, willfully seek out something deep and profound. Let it come naturally on its own terms. Remember what you are seeking is what you are seeking with. Instead “listen with your heart” to the natural observations made by Laozi and his commentators, Their work is not to be studied or consciously mulled but felt very deeply with the heart by letting their words sink to that place where words disappear and meanings dissolve.
