Tao Te Ching Chapter 11

Tao Te Ching Chapter 11
A couple of days ago we talked about going to the edge of something but not beyond it. Looking now the edge does not even need to be close. Restraint. Hold back. Safe in not pushing the envelope?
Today of course that which is not there perhaps helps us to grow. That seeking to fill the empty spaces of our lives. With what will yours be filled with today?

Tao Te Ching Chapter 10

Tao Te Ching Chapter 10
Today we are given a method for being. A way to walk through the world and yet it seems that the nature of man is to distort the path, to veer off the road a bit onto the bummpy little things on the side of the highway. You can drive just as well but it makes a lot of noise inside the vechicle. I enjoyed the questions. Can you walk this path and stay pure.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 9

Tao Te Ching Chapter 9
To paraphrase the grateful dead - to much of everything is still never enough.
I think the Tao is showing us today that a moderate pace is better. That it is easy to go beyond. Stopping early instead of going to the brink usually produces a better outcome.
Ghost Dog said that when it is raining you can run from eve to eve finding protection or just walk in the rain, you get just as wet either way.
good stuff.

No Fight: No blame.
We will cease fighting anything or anyone. Hecetu welo - It is the way that it is.
I read this chapter this morning and thought it very nice.

Jones Soda

My good buddy Jet had some Jones soda made up for the studio. Man he is the coolest cat I know. Hornored to have him as a friend. Need to compell myself to reach out and pick up the phone and give him a call.
I will try to post a picture soon.
