Tao # 22 / Yielding


The supple reed
yields to the wind
and thus leaps back again
the empty bowl
is ready to be filled
the athlete expends energy
and thus expands strength

cherish simplicity
let go of complexity
think a little, you'll gain a lot
think too hard, you'll be confused

The Wise Dwell within DivineUnity
setting an example for all to see

but not as a product of puffery
not by means of braggotry
not self-righteous,
they are dignified
The wise simply shine
no need to justify

The wise do not compete
Thus there is no competition

ancient sayings illuminate
"yield and you shall overcome"
"empty and you shall be filled"
"it is done unto you as you believe"
"surrender and be free."

True Spiritual Paths are personal adventures in deeper discovery. Most people are told what to believe and never question that they were told. In cultures dominated by weak faiths promoting the dominator model of living, traditions are reinforced by legal codes which may even be backed with the death penalty. Yet for the person who is strong and listens to the Divine within, a new journey begins regardless of the presence of oppression. These are the folks who have a New Thought. They begin to question and their questions lead to deeper answers. This is why New Thought is growing around the globe. In contrast to the dominator model of social organization, the partnership model is emerging or re-emerging as the superior social structure. Recent biological breakthroughs supported by economic analysis support these conclusions. Computers have enabled mathematical analysis of economic data demonstrating the importance of human rights in the face of economic abuses around the globe. Wisdom is the combination of intelligence with compassion. The Universal Declaration of Human Rights ensures the ability for all people to live to their full potential. Explore New Thought INFO.
