Communities Wielding Velvet Sledgehammers for the Sake of Healing

Act without doing; work without effort.

Think of the small as large, and the few as many.

Confront the difficult while it is still easy,

Accomplish the great task by a series of small acts.

The master never reaches for the great, thus she achieves greatness.

When she runs into a difficulty, she stops and gives herself to it.

She doesn’t cling to her own comfort, thus problems are no problem for her.

Tao Te Ching, v. 63 (trans. Stephen Mitchell)
