That Which Is So Of Itself

The Chinese term, tzu-jan, can be translated as nature, nature as in an entire point of view. It means “that which is so of itself.” The English word for it might be spontaneity. Like your heart beat, or controlling your body temperature, and replacing the millions of cells in your body each day, it does all of this by itself. Nothing has to be controlled, it simply is. This is tzu-jan – “that which is so of itself.”
