The Nature of Being and the Tao te Ching
The Tao te Ching in Stephen Mitchells translation says in #2
When people see some things as beautiful, other things become ugly. When people see some things as good, other things become bad.
Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other. Long and short define each other.
High and low depend on each other. Before and after follow each other…….
Comparisons, in our lives we tend to compare most everything. It is how we relate to different experiences and it is what underlies our need to Judge. While these comparisons have their place, the need to be right or wrong, to justify an action, leads us deeper into drama vs balance. The art of sensating is what allows us to move beyond the need to be right or wrong, to bypass the mind and enter being. We invite you to feel the sensations that arise within you, especially when feeling conflict, and to let them change, evolve and in so doing allowing yourself to BE.
