Lao Tzu + Franz Kafka

Stop leaving and you will arrive.
Stop searching and you will see.
Stop running away and you will be found.
-Lao Tzu

You do not need to leave your room. Remain sitting at your table and listen. Do not even listen, simply wait. Do not even wait, be quite still and solitary. The world will freely offer itself to you to be unmasked. It has no choice, it will roll in ecstasy at your feet.
-Franz Kafka
