Tao Te Ching verse 28
July 9th at 10am EST – This week’s topic: Living Virtuously Chapter 28 of “Change your thoughts, Change your life. Living the wisdom of the Tao” by Wayne Dyer
“Know the strength of man, but keep a woman’s care“
Tao Te Ching Verse 28 begins with balanced rumination, on the masculine and feminine, in a sort of general reference which seems to describe both strong points of yin and yang, strength and care.
“Be a valley under heaven, if you do, the constant virtue will not fade away.”
To me this means to be a receptacle of virtuous action. Known as The Way, it presents itself as the right way to go or be…
“Know the white, keep to the black, and be the pattern of the world.”
It’s to remain in the path of constant virtue, “and to return again to the infinite“.
“One who understands splendor while holding to humility, acts in accord with eternal Power.”
“To be the fountain of the world is to live the abundant life of virtue”
I think equates to being in touch with one’s own inner source, to find the right way in life.
“When the unformed becomes formed into objects, it’s original qualities are lost. If you preserve your original qualities you can govern anything. Truly, the best governor governs least”
These wonderful aphorisms are old and still ring as true today as when they were penned, and the level of truth being very deep. I’m not sure we can always translate them to our modern day experience, but we can do our best to extract these pearls of truth left by Lao Tzu to help show The Way.
