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 49

The sage does not set her mind.
Instead she holds the mind of the people.

She is kind to the kind and unkind alike,
because virtue is kind.

She trusts the truthful and not truthful alike,
because virtue is truthful.

A sage lives in harmony with everything around her,
and everything around her sees her as a child.

If you haven’t participated yet, why not join us next week? We will be looking at Chapter 50 next week. Or, you can always start at the beginning and do the earlier ones. They are all linked up on the List of All Chapters page so they do get looked at later on by people stopping by.


  1. I like that….and wouldn’t it be wonderful if we could all live in harmony with everything around us!

    • Thanks, Louis! Yes, I am very happy that it is finally back up. It is still a little bit slow, but it is better than it not being there at all!
