道 Dao ξ ≈ The Path
Awaken the path ;
True conceptions is between the comprehensible & incomprehensible. Thus the path that is; the path that can be seen; the path that is unseen; choosing your path; knowing your path; following your path…
Understanding the concept of Dao; is to acknowledge that there are; the known known; the known unknown; & the unknown unknown.
The common analogy is to describe Dao as the flow of water. Dao is not the water; yet water cannot flow without Dao. No action does not mean inaction, just like water wearing away stones to pebbles to sand & to water. A stone seemingly seats still, yet it is spinning as fast as Earth turns; and in turn is spinning around the Sun; and in turn is hurling at speed through the galaxy.
Remember that nature does not make mistakes.
“Regard yourself as a cloud. Clouds never make mistakes. Did you ever see a cloud that was misshapen? Did you ever see a badly designed wave? No, they always do the right thing. And if you will treat yourself for a while as a cloud or wave, you’ll realize that you can’t make a mistake whatever you do. Because even if you do something that appears totally bizarre, it will all come out in the wash somehow or another. Then through this capacity you will develop a kind of confidence. And through confidence you will be able to trust your own intuition.” – Alan Watts
Well being is attained by little & little, and nevertheless is no little thing itself.
Will you understand what i’m going to tell you? … No, you’re not going to be able to understand it. … That is because i don’t understand it. Nobody does.
