Inspiring Peace, Happiness and Mindfulness Quotes
Today I’d like to share with you some beautiful Tao and Zen quotes I found on this page. But what actually is Tao? Or Zen? You might have heard these words before and you probably think of ‘relaxing’ ‘decluttered’ spaces or Zen inspired bedrooms.
Being a curious Gemini I have today learned more about Tao (Chinese) and Zen (Japanese). Tao (pronounced “dao”) means literally “the path” or “the way.” It is a universal principle that underlies everything from the creation of galaxies to the interaction of human beings. The workings of Tao are vast and often beyond human logic. In order to understand Tao, reasoning alone will not suffice. One must also apply intuition. Zen refers to the Japanese school of Mahayana Buddhism emphasizing the value of meditation and intuition rather than ritual worship or study of scriptures. So the quotes today are inspired by the abovementioned philosophies and focus on serenity, peace, meditation and life.
Even if you don’t think you are in to this kind of Asian spiritual ‘thing’, think again and be inspired by these beautiful quotes.
