Tao Te Ching Chapter 19
Interesting. Again I am reminded to let it go. Do not hang on to the things around. Do not place value upon the external. The internal the thoughts , feeling, and then actions should be based upon the right thought the right way. Removal of the ego from all of that and to give wholely and unconditionally to others. to my relations and to the world. Progress not perfection it is said.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 18

Tao Te Ching Chapter 18
This one is scary having just seen V, is for Vengence. Great movie. Highly recommed it. It is a good dose of a utopian future that is not all that utopian. Once you get used to not seeing the mouth moving on V it is not so bad, sort of a voice from no where at times.
Any way the tenants here I thought were good things in and of themselves and yet when put into the context of Chapter 18 the results of these good items is a negative. Seen anywhere at work in today's society?

Tao Te Ching Chapter 17

Tao Te Ching Chapter 17
The very highest we get glimpses of now and again. It is a true pleasure. I heard a while back that one who is enlightened does not have to stay enlightened, it is a sort of state or way of being of which one can drift in and out. The glimpse of the divine occurs with us in many ways and I am sure we are not even aware of what it is we are witnessing.

The Coachmen

This is the new (old) 1986 Coachmen Crusader. She is 23 feet long. Not sure yet of a name. Many thanks to the Bloos family for their kindness and good hearted nature. This drives like a dream. Fun summer lies in store to be sure.

Tao Te Ching Chapter 16

Tao Te Ching Chapter 16
Rise and fall. We watch and wait and are active and moving and doing and hopefully just being. Wait. relax. Did you ever go to the beach and sit and watch the waves come in. Twilight as the night begins to over take and last vestige of blue in the sky. Watching the water turn darker, watching the sky turn darker. Pin pricks of light coming through the curtain of night and the moon low sort of shimmers on the water. The sound of the waves rise and fall. rythm of the earth. laying on the sand half buried by the last warmth.
Great Island on Cape Cod. about half way down to the point. That is the essence of nature.
