Tao Te Ching Day 92: Have You Ever Had a Dream

The named is the mother of myriad things

Thus, constantly without desire, one observes its essence

Constantly with desire, one observes its manifestations

TTC 1 (Lin)

Having the dreams of a million versions of life I spend the night in trees. I walk the molten pathways of chocolate rivers and dive the depths of endless space.

To desire is to create from the vastness of the endless Tao.

To be desire-less, I experience all of everything and all of nothing in a single glance.

What would you rather experience, one thing you want now? Or all of eternity in every moment?

Desire is the former; desire-less is the latter.

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.
