What you do is what you are by Lao Tzu

It is part of the cosmic law that what you say and do determines

what happens in your life.

The ordinary person thinks that this law is external to himself

and he feels confined and controlled by it.

So his desires trouble his mind, his mind troubles his spirit,

and he lives in constant turmoil with himself and the world.

His whole life is spent in struggling.


The superior person recognizes that he and the subtle law are one.

Therefore he cultivates himself to accord with it, bringing

moderation to his actions and clarity to his mind.

Doing this, he finds himself at one with all that is divine and enlightened.

This is the profound, simple truth:

You are the master of your life and death.

What you do is what you are.
