Hidden Virtues From the Tao Te Ching


Reading '
Living the Wisdom of the Tao
The Complete Tao Te Ching And Affirmations
from Dr. Wayne W. Dyer (
) has been a joy. There are very special passages that are written pointing to our oneness (great personal theme) with life. In particular,
Verse 16
from the book on page 35 has prompted this sharing. In the preface to the verse, Dr. Dyer has written his impression: 

Amidst the rush

of worldly

comings and goings

I observe how all

endings become beginnings


Become totally empty.

Let your heart be at peace.

Amidst the rush of worldly comings and goings,

observe how endings become beginnings.

Things flourish, each by each,

only to return to the Source...

to what is and what is to be.

To return to the root is to find peace.

To find peace is to fulfill one's destiny

To fulfill one's destiny is to be constant.

To know the constant is called insight.

Not knowing this cycle

leads to eternal disaster.

Knowing the constant gives perspective.

This perspective is impartial.

Impartiality is the highest nobility;

the highest nobility is Divine.

Being Divine, you will be at one with the Tao.

Being at one with the Tao is eternal.

This way is everlasting,

not endangered by physical death.

What a wonderful way to contemplate our true nature in this play of existence. Seems a lot of the awakened sages and masters had a unified knowledge that all comes from the Source. Many names to be sure, but the Source, the eternal includes our connection as one. As always, Enjoy your discovery, enjoy knowing and the direct experience.

One Love
