Tao Te Ching Day 66: According With The Tao

“Sparse speech is natural

Thus strong wind does not last all morning

Sudden rain does not last all day

What makes this so? Heaven and Earth

Even Heaven and Earth cannot make it last

How can humans?”

TTC 23 (Lin)

I am drained from the emotions of my day yesterday and feel the need to allow the feelings of difficult relationships to settle. Forcing anything today would be creating a storm where there is no need for one.

“Thus those who follow the Tao are with the Tao.

Those who follow virtue are with virtue

Those who follow loss are with loss

Those who are with the Tao, the Tao is also pleased to have them

Those who are with virtue, virtue is also pleased to have them.

Those who are with loss, loss is also pleased to have them

Those who do not trust sufficiently, others have no trust in them.”

TTC 23 (Lin

Choose your path and know that it will accept you willingly. Also know that each path leads somewhere, so I will choose the path that leads to the Tao.

That looks like this sometimes.

Happy Day

I am a writer, a storyteller, a yarn-spinning freakazoid. My life is full of two things today, lessons and blessings. I write fiction mostly but I also love to write about my life and the things I go through on a daily basis. Writing it out inspires and motivates me and that's why I do it. Plus if it does that for me maybe it will for someone else too.
