The Tao that can be told

The Tao te Ching in the first section says “The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao”.  It goes on and on about the desire to know and the willingness to enter the mystery explaining that both arise for the same source… the unknown.  If we think of feeling as the connection that opens us to the mysterious and over active mind that keeps us caught in the drama of life, we begin notice a pattern. Sensation allows us to experience an open ended life, one filled with the mysterious.  The over active mind keeps us caught in the continual mind story, the drama that never ends.  ~Alain & Jody Herriott
