* Tao Inspiration – Push and Pull

“The way of the universe is a symbiotic flow.
As one part pulls, another part pushes.
A part that has excess will lose. A part that is lacking will gain.

Presently, society acts against this flow.
Where there is abundance, there is power to acquire even more.
What is it when excess is freely offered, rather than accumulated?
It is the way of Tao.

The sage works without expectation of return:
Achieving without need for recognition,
Doing without dominating.” *

~ Lao Tzu


How relevant to society today. Yet the Tao te Ching dates back to the second century BC.
The wisdom is never ending as the universe continues to flow. May we find understanding in the balance of yin and yang in all things.

  2. Thank you for this today, Val. It is perfect. And the picture, so well chosen. I feel so sad right now. Past anger into deep mourning. This helps. It really does.
    Peace and love to you this day and forward. It will be interesting to see how this all shakes out, given the truth in this quote.
