“Stillness in Motion:
Things come in motion,
stillness is developed.”
“The spirit awaits things to come to it in void.
Tao comes together in the void.
Mind fasting is being in the void.”
“Void Room Illumines.”
“Tao Interchanges in One.”

“The sage harmonizes conflicts
and rest in the balanced Law of Nature;
this is called dual path. ”
Vincent van Gogh
“Happiness is not a matter of intensity
but of balance, order, rhythm and harmony.”
Still Leisure, Void Illumined
Rest the heart with no fetters.
Soul and nature in art.
Let wild wind embraces body.
Watch thoughts in clouds.
where self knowledge and one’s nature are.
Unconcerned, pick a remote place,
A tranquil self at ease.
Retreat from worldly fetters in silent void,
intimate with tree and grass.
Poetic art can enlighten.
Fleeting life comes from my spirit.
See nothing in what comes and goes.
Know: experience innocence.
Nature’s Mind Image
Nature is a collection of amazing poetry,
natural scenes bring wonders in love for art.
Transform harmony into mind image,
accommodate this life in void.

Wang Shu is a dear friend who inspired me to embark on the long journey to study Taoist philosophy of Lao Tzu and then Chuang Tzu. Hope his art and poetry translated in English from Chinese facilitate your appreciation for Chuang Tzu’s teachings.All his poems are in Chinese but some in German.
