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 66

How does the Great Sea become leader of the valley?

The Great Sea is the leader of the rivers and valleys
because she is able to take the lower position.

Therefore one that desires to be above others,
surely ends up on the bottom.

If one wishes to be ahead of others,
she must surely be walking behind.

The true sage is given her place above
but does not weigh heavily on her people.

She stands before them as a leader,
and causes them no harm.

The world below is happy to uphold such leadership
without end.

She does not compete and therefore
the world has nothing against her.

If you haven’t participated yet, why not join us next week? We will be looking at Chapter 67 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.
