Tao

Jul 22 2006

Amazing, really, how things that seem so meaningless can actually be so true.

I’ve been reading the Tao Te Ching. Its sayings have dovetailed with what I’ve been learning in my daily meditations, that external knowledge is less important than internal knowledge. That the path to true peace begins (and ends?) inside one’s own being.

Take away your thoughts and your feelings, and what would be left? A person who is truly at peace no longer needs conscious thought or feelings to function. Not that thought or feeling are bad; just that they aren’t necessary to live. Do you need to think about a sunset? Do you need to feel it? Or can you just watch it?

Stephen Do you even need to watch it?
