Prayer for Wednesday (Ganesh Chaturthi)

Today is the Hindu festival of Ganesh Chaturti.

When you accept the fact you have no control
and choose not to take any action,
you are letting go.
~ Darren L. Johnson

The Way never does anything,
and everything gets done.
If those in power could hold to the Way,
the ten thousand things
would look after themselves.
If even so they tried to act,
I’d quiet them with the nameless,
the natural.

In the unnamed, in the unshaven,
is not wanting.
In not wanting is stillness.
In stillness all under heaven rests.

(Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching)
