Tao #15 ~ Profound
Ф

Once Upon A Time
those who lived through the Tao
were Subtle, Profound and Wise
Knowing there is only NOW
then we must describe
that which cannot be understood
through simply understanding
we must seat ourselves within
and perhaps then
begin

they were
one
with their surroundings
cautious
as
one
crossing a winter stream

conscious
aware as warriors
of all that is
all four directions

subtle
like soft melting
of spring ice in shade

genuine
candid, unaffected, natural
like uncut wood

receptive, vacant, spacious, open
as a valley

When the Water is muddy
leave it be
let it settle
serenity brings clarity

relax as a cat
until action is appropriate
observe without seeking
nor overextending
change without
wanting
be within
enduring
knowing
eternally
beyond
wear
or
renewing

Let us find the shades of grey and allow the light to shine today!

What can this teach us?


Who is Schrödinger?

What country did he come from?

What is Schrödinger's cat?

What is the importance of being one with your surroundings?

How does the awareness of a warrior differ from that of a civilian?

What does "unaffected" mean?

Why is it good to be "receptive"?

How does serenity bring clarity?

What can we learn from the way a cat relaxes?
