No Self is True Self

The man in whom Tao acts without impediment
Does not bother with his own interests
And does not despise others who do

He does not struggle to make money
And does not make a virtue of poverty.

He goes his way without relying on others
And does not pride himself on walking alone.

While he does not follow the crowd
He won't complain of those who do.

Rank and reward make no appeal to him;
Disgrace and shame do not deter him.

He is not always looking for right and wrong
Always deciding "yes" and "no."

The ancients said, therefore:
"The man of Tao remains unknown.
Perfect virtue produces nothing
No-Self Is True-Self
And the greatest man is nobody"


Chuang Tzu

'Freedom from all desire is eternity. All attachment implies fear, for all things are transient. And fear makes one a slave. This freedom from attachment does not come with practice; it is natural, when one knows one's true being. Love does not cling; clinging is not love.' - Nisargadatta Maharaj

This guy keeps popping up in my life over and over again lately, whenever I go to search any quotes from the Masters...he's always there, begging me to find out more about him, so today I will multiquote:

"Have you ever realized that you can give things to God that are of value to Him? Or are you just sitting around daydreaming about the greatness of His redemption, while neglecting all the things you could be doing for Him? I'm not referring to works which could be regarded as divine and miraculous, but ordinary, simple human things - things which would be evidence to God that you are totally surrendered to Him."
- Oswald Chambers

And which teacher or master said this?
It is not easy for me to figure out what
is being said exactly...usually a teacher makes things easy for the student,
and with all the typos, no less...had to correct divine.
Makes me curious to say the least. Thanks

You speak of God as though you speak on behalf of the creation you dwell within, for it is the binding of all given by the Grand Binding of God's eternal touch for that is to be known to all who are in the passings of the time that is God's design and will within the Ages of Mankind's measure of truth yet to be measured in the conduct of the gift of life, so be unto the truth that is to you for a day
nears when you may kneel before God in an Agelessness of your passings only so measurement is giveth unto your passings. So be forth unto a wisdom of greatness that is the truth so you may know that all are given forth life to then abide to the truthful intent of a means of honourable conduct within the passings within the Binding of God's Creation

Mankind's means of truth shall be given its measurement of integrity in a time of truth that is an age torn before an unbreakable Bond is broken by the truth of unity.

I can ask the mods to change the Subject Title if it needs to be clearer.
Thanks
