Tao Te Ching

I share with you the following verse from the Tao Te Ching.

When people see some things as beautiful ,
Other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
Other things become bad.

Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.

 Therefore the Master acts without doing anything,
 and teaches without saying anything.
 Things arise and she lets then come;
Things disappear and she lets them go

She has but doesn't possess,
Acts but doesn't expect.
When her work is done she forgets it.
That is why it last forever.

The TAO is trying to explain that this life is an illusion. We are told by people that we are individuals but we are not because we are ALL one! The TAO explains this duality of lies. Ignore the dualities of life and do as the TAO says, I have said over and over...Watch, wait & don't react...emotionally to the events of chaos. My energy reactions feed the elites as does yours. Be aware of teh beauty and perfection who we already are....who we are, who you are, who I am is WISDOM!

I find it very interesting how many humans read the TAO, see it as beauty & wisdom, yet few see meaning or understanding to the words.

Namaste brother Ronnie;

Excellent choice with this Tao quote. One of my favourites as it encourages us to see the essence of duality. Cheers brother, hope you are having a fantastic day.

In Lak' ech... prosper beyond judgement... live with duality...
