Who needs Taco Tuesdays when you can have Tao Tuesdays?

I am sure that Einstein would have really loved this…

Here is How it Works

I will post a chapter of the Tao Te Ching each Tuesday.  (My version – you can see all of the chapters on my List of Chapters page if you want to work ahead!) I will put a Mr. Linky entry form with it so that you can write your OWN commentary to the chapter on your own blog and then come back here after you post and add your link! Simple! (Please add the DIRECT link to your post about that particular chapter to make it easy for our readers!)

I am so excited to read what you wrote! It has been so fun for me to work with this material and I really got the depth when I started writing about it. It is my wish that you will find the same! (Plus some extra traffic to your blog!)

Don’t worry if you miss a week. Don’t worry if you just join us now and again. It is totally open. You can even go back to a previous chapter and post there. I will add each Tao Tuesday entry post to the List of Chapters page so you can read the other entries as you are reviewing all of the chapters.


We are all sages.

Chapter 4

Tao is like an empty cup
that cannot be filled,
Although we drink of it continuously.
It is the deep source
of the Ten Thousand Things.

Tao smoothes our sharp edges,
Untangles the knots in our lives,
And blends our brilliance with our dust.

Its depth is eternal.

The Original Divinity.


NEXT TUESDAY IS CHAPTER 5… will you join us in writing your own translation and come and post it next week?
