The Way

Posted by Ed Crowley; Taoism; Lao Tzu and Wu Wei Group

The Unknown Wanderer
leaves no traces
of his journey

He speaks little and
only says the barest
of necessities

He saves his people
leaving no one behind

Always following the light
he is a good teacher

He sees through the fog and disillusionment of life

He realizes the goodness
of the Essence in all.

He doesn’t have to follow
the Way anymore because
at this point in his life.

He is the Way.

10,000 Things

From the 10,000 things, as posted by Tao and Zen

Tao & Zen

“Be content with what you have;
rejoice in the way things are.
When you realize there is nothing lacking,
the whole world belongs to you.”

― Lao Tzu

Lao Tzu is credited with writing The Tao, although like many works from that many years ago and transcribed, and from the eastern culture before the birth of Christ, his authorship is disputed. The 10,000 things are in the Tao. And for our records, Tao is pronounced Dao. The Tao is translated as The Way. And this in turn gives new meaning to what the mice say when they say, “The waaaaayyyy things are.” Those mice are very smart fellows, that.

And today was a very fine day indeed.
