Walking the Tao – Chapter 73

We take some sort of action every moment. We have intentions for the outcomes of those actions. Yet we can’t possibly control the infinite interactions that operate in each moment. We can’t control the short or long term effects of any of our actions. We mean for good, and harm results, then transforms into good later on, then… We cannot control nor should we be so narcissistic as to think we should. We simply take the next best step along our path and rest in the knowledge that it is all part of the Tao.
