Chuang Tzu - from Metamorphosis
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
"There is a time for putting together
And another time for taking apart.
He who understands
This course of events
Takes each new state
In its proper time
With neither sorrow nor joy.
The ancients said: 'The hanged man
Cannot cut himself down.'
But in due time Nature is stronger
Than all his ropes and bonds.
It was always so
Where is there a reason
To be discouraged?
