Much speech leads inevitably to silence. Better to hold fast to the void.
— Lao Tzu
Lao Tzu tells us that our words have no meaning. That only action is understood by the universe. If our thoughts shape the world in which we live, what we do is the embodiment of this.
As we untangle ourselves from the slavery of thought and live in each and every moment of our work, we become free. What was and will be are not relevant to where we are now.
