Chuang Tzu Story - The Empty Boat (空船)
This following below is an interesting paragraph I came upon when reading book Zhang Zi. I like share it with people and hope Zhuangzi's story can enlighten us somehow:

Who can free himself of achievement and fame
Then descend and be lost
Amidst the masses of men?

He will flow like Tao, unseen…
He will go about like life itself,
With no name and no home.

Simple is he, without.
To all appearances he is a fool.
His steps leave no trace.

He has no power.
He achieves nothing.
He has no reputation.

Since he judges no one,
No one judges him.

Such is the perfect man.
His boat is empty.
