Tao # 41 / Wisdom


The Wise hear of the way and begin to walk it
The mediocre hear of the way and have doubts
The foolish hear of the way and laugh aloud
if there was no laughter, it would not be the way

Therefore we hear whispers:
The way that is bright seems dull
The way that is progressive seems to go backward
The way that is smoothest seems to be rough
The highest virtue is found in the prostitute
the purest virgin is just a sullied substitute
measured virtue seems lame
vigorous virtue seems lazy
simple virtue is a peasant

the perfect square has no corners
Greatest Talents mature with time
Highest notes are hardest to hear
the Greatest form has no shape
The way is hidden
having no name
yet only by travelling the way,
do we find fulfillment

  • Why is it that when the Wise hear of the way, they begin to walk it?
  • Why would the mediocre have doubts?
  • Why do the foolish laugh aloud?
  • Why is laughter essential to the way?
  • Why would the bright way seem dull?
  • Why does the smoothest way seem backward?
  • Is there any sarcasm in this Tao? if so where and what does it serve?
  • Why is simple virtue a peasant?
  • What is a peasant and how does a peasant compare to a farmer?
  • Why did Thomas Jefferson believe that free independent family farmers with mastery of technology are the best security against tyranny?
  • Why do the greatest talents mature with time?
  • Why are the highest notes hardest to hear?
  • How do we find fulfillment, nourishment and completion through the way?

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.
