Simplicity, patience and compassion

Hello my friendly blog reader!

I’ve been working VERY hard writing copy and doing videos for my new website. It should be ready within the next few days!

In the mean time, I want to share with you this beautiful newsletter from Rod MacIver’s Heron Dance newsletter.


Historian Su-ma Ch’ien, who lived in about 145-180 BC, wrote that Lao-tzu worked in the royal court in the country of Chou, but seeing its decline, he left on a journey. When he reached the frontier, the guard asked him, “Since you are going away, Sir, could you write a book to teach me the art of living?”

Lao-tzu then wrote his book about the Tao, and departed.

I have just three things to teach:
simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and in thoughts,
you return to the source of being.
Patience with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.
– Lao-Tzu

If you like this and are interested in learning more about Rod’s art and wisdom, go check out his website at for more information.

Have a most wonderful week, my friendly blog reader.

I wish you simplicity, patience and compassion.

xoxo Pam

p.s. The website should be up and running within a week or so. Thanks for your patience! :)

In response to the stormy seas of life, my husband Blake and I have created this website to be a Current of Inspiration, a wave of love and joy to wash away hate and fear. By posting every week, it's our commitment to making our world a better place. We hope you find it uplifting and will share it with your friends! Thanks for stopping by! xoxo
