Careless wandering (逍遥游)


“In Chuang Tzu’s view, man must be keenly aware of his own existence and not derive himself from others. He must not derive the present from the past or the future, worthiness from worthlessness, boundary from boundlessness, life from death. Only then can he gain freedom from restraints. The philosophy of Chuang Tzu is a philosophy of freedom. It is a philosophy by which life is experienced in endless time and boundless space. To him, the secular life is ‘an order without life’, whereas what he set out to pursue is a ‘life without order’.”

A philosophy worth its salt =)
