Seven Taoist Masters

If one cannot cut the ties to gain and loss and to social pressures; if one is concerned with whether one’s appearance is appealing, whether one’s food is the best, whether one’s wealth is acknowledged, and whether one’s property is large, then one has not learned to see through the illusions of material things. Graving breeds anxiety. If you crave, then you’ll be anxious to obtain what you desire. If you want to dissolve it, you must cut your ties to gain and loss. – Seven Taoist Masters
