Tao Haiku - Verse 6

January 17, 2017

               Do not seek oneness.

Tao is both one and many.

Follow nature’s way.

 

 Commentary


Tao encompasses all, yin and yang, light and dark, good and evil.

 

Tao creates Heaven and Earth, from which the 10,000 things are conceived.

 

Tao is one, Tao is many.  All things return to Tao. Therefore the sage accepts the way of Tao and does not try to hasten others towards unity and oneness. To say everything should be light is to disregard the dark.  

 

It is unwise to think you are wise and justified in your desire to strive for unity. Yin and Yang are balanced in the universe.

 

Lao Tzu says:

"Give up sainthood, renounce wisdom, and it will be a hundred times better for everyone."

 

"Empty yourself of everything.

Let the mind rest at peace.

The 10,000 things rise and fall while the Self watches their return."

 

Let go of your agenda to change and save the world.

 

As Master Sha teaches:

"Tao Fa Zi Ran"

Follow nature's way.
