Words by Thomas Droge

The Dao is the hidden force that connects all things. Daoists believe when the mind is emptied of thought, emotion and attachment, clarity arrives. Only then does the ultimate nature of reality, empty of all projections, become visible. To achieve this state of clarity, one must learn to regulate the mind, the breath and one’s actions to be in harmony with nature; when this state is entered a thunderclap is heard and the adept becomes a sage.


When born the first thing we do is breathe. We weep and spray and scream into the passion of our life’s journey. At the end of our time we leave with a last exhale of surrender, at our road’s end, leaving this world in a breathless infinite moment.
