Tao Te Ching Verse 12 Explored

Happy Monday!

I hope you all had a great weekend.

Due to a very busy schedule this week, I thought I’d switch blog topics a little.

I love all aspects of mystical religion, metaphysics and spirituality, and love sharing wisdom from wise ones.

I hope you enjoy some short explorations into Lao Tzu’s teachings as offered in the Tao Te Ching this week, by Stephen Mitchell.

Today, we will start with verse 12, and we will explore verse 13 Wednesday, and Verse 62 Friday, if all goes to plan.

Tao Te Ching Verse 12 Explored

I explain some of the less obvious expressions of Lao Tzu’s verse today on my video.

Living Tao

 Colors blind the eye.

Sounds deafen the ear.

Flavors numb the taste.

Thoughts weaken the mind.

Desires whither the heart.

The Master observes the world

but trusts his inner vision.

He allows things to come and go.

His heart is open as the sky.

I hope you enjoy gaining another perspective on these great life teachings.

Love and chi,

Paul Chek
