The Tao Is Tao (17) - Daily Tao

                                                                         17

                                                             Analytical thinking,
                                                       which divides and dissects.
                                                       does not satisfy the needs
                                                                  of the spirit,
                                                        for the spirit finds peace
                                                                     in unity,
                                                              which exists only
                                                                 in emptiness
                                                  where thinking has no influence.

                                                To step into the realm of the spirit
                                                        is to abandon thinking.
                                                Can you step over the precipice,
                                                   not knowing what is below?
                                                         Life starts that way.

                                                                                --Jos Stabbert

I could not follow the Tao, for in the end-informations it was simply not durable, reactable, or useful.

Good to see you are still around and live, if you are.

Love,
Jay

Yes, i am alive, my friend
The funeral is for my spouse, Dianne, only
One advantage of trying to follow Tao
is that i accept loss because i know it is inevitable.
