Keeping Still Overcomes Heat

Keeping Still Overcomes Heat

 

Keeping Still Overcomes Heat (1)

 

The highest perfection is like imperfection,

And its use is never impaired.

The greatest abundance seems meager,

And its use will never fail.

What is most straight appears devious,

The greatest skill appears as clumsiness;

The greatest eloquence seems like stuttering.

Movement overcomes cold,

(But) keeping still overcomes heat.

Who is calm and quiet becomes the guide for the universe.

Tao

  1. Are these paintings or photographs have been treated to look like paintings.whatever might be the case but they look beautiful.

    • It started out as photographs then I did some post-processing, used coloration and brushstrokes to make them more painterly . I’m glad you liked them.
