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 52

Mother is the beginning of the Universe.

When one understands the mother,
one understands the child.

When one knows the child,
one is also close to the mother
and the spirit will never be exhausted.

Block your senses,
close your gates
and your life will peaceful.

Open your mouth,
keep yourself busy
and you will be beyond rescue.

Perceiving the insignificant
is called enlightenment.

Staying flexible
is called strength.

Always returning to your inner light
and avoiding misfortune,
this is the eternal practice.

If you haven’t participated yet, why not join us next week? We will be looking at Chapter 53 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.
