Through our Daily Spiritual Practice we find…
Tao Te Ching is one of the most famous text, written around the 6th century BC by the sage Lao-tzu, 2,500 years ago. ‘Tao’ means ‘way’ or ‘path’…..’te’ means ‘inner strength’ or ‘integrity’ or ‘divine power’ or ‘moral goodness’ or ‘virtue’. ‘Ching means ‘scripture’ or ‘text’. It refers to man as being one with the universe ‘The Great Integrity.’ It is a series of 81 versus, only 5,000 characters of pure wisdom. It is a classic in the realm of enlightenment.
The Tao doesn’t teach us how to overcome gravity, it teaches us to live in sync with gravity. We aren’t trying to levitate, we are here to know ourselves, to be one with the all, to live in accordance with ‘The Law’ of the universe. To live in harmony is ‘The Way’. We may never fully comprehend or understand all the wisdom and multiple perspectives that allow the unfolding of possibilities within ‘The Tao’ in this lifetime, but that is the beauty of it. They say that where ever one’s consciousness is, ‘The Tao’ will speak to them accordingly, meeting them exactly where they are. It teaches in relativity and surrenders to neutrality in humble ways, bringing us to be one with the universe. We are the microcosm of the entire universe.
