The Tao doesn’t take sides

It gives birth to both good and evil.

The Master doesn’t take sides;

she welcomes both saints and sinners.

The Tao is like a bellows:

it is empty yet infinitely capable.

The more you use it, the more it produces;

the more you talk of it, the less you understand.

Hold on to the center.*

 

Let go of fear, anger and judgments that keep us separate and in conflict.

Connect to the center and infinite wisdom beyond words.

More than ever, Find Your Middle Ground

  1. The more you use it, the more it produces;

    the more you talk of it, the less you understand.

  8. The philosophy of Daoism is perfect, and this is one of my favorite pieces of wisdom: you need both to make meaning. Beautiful words to always remember. Wishing you well, Val. Take care.
