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.

Void Stillness
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.

(national artist of Austria, also taught Chinese philosophy in Germany)
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.

Void and One Meditation

This is a very easy meditation explaining how to free and ease the mind with Chuang Tzu’s teachings of “Void” and “One” in three stages of humming, circling and silence based on Osho’s Tibetan Nadhabrahma meditation.

VOID (Humming “Aum”)
The humming is like resonance inside the hollow bamboo stem. It voids the mind, fasts the mind of thoughts with the monotone of “Aum” or SIT and FORGET thoughts, emotions, past and future dwelling in the present moment with the “Aum” sound.

” Void room illumines.” Chuang Tzu

ONE (Circling hands)
Move the hands in opposite directions in circles. The Universe goes in cycles, Opposites alternate and resume in ONE circle.

“Tao interchange in One.”Chuang Tzu “Harmonize Right and Wrong.”

VOID (Silence)
Sit or lie down in silence.

“Awaits in Void.” Chuang Tzu
