For every act of evil, there is an act of beauty. You Can't Change the World, Only Your Attitude Towards It.

I see I

The cat or dog is given a mirror and they become fascinated by the reflection, scratching at the mirror, jumping around, running to the back of the mirror, seeing nothing they return to the front, nudge it, on and on..

So it is also with the person when they first see the world.

With time they may realize the world is a reflection of themselves and smile.

Wow . . So true . . Tao! A succinct point very well made.

Tao said...

It is rare I am succinct :)

If I don't make my point in the first sentence then I go on for paragraphs and start swearing.

Green Monk said...

Wonderfully put! Very true!

Fay's Too said...

Thank you.

Doug McMillan said...

A Taoist who swears? Now that sounds too much like a Wayward Yogi I know of! You don't fart and sip wine at the same time do you? ;-)

Tao said...

Oh you've read my posts on farting?

here is one of many

Doug McMillan said...

"Where Zen and Buddhism will say the truth, enlightenment,
and so on can be reached through dedicated meditation and
practice, a Tao master may sip some wine, fart, and go to sleep."

Enough said? Now don't go falling asleep on us . . .

Actually, some of my posts have been so long they end up being one whole chapter of a book I'm obviously still in the middle of writing; if you catch my inference?

I suffer in the same way as you Tao; sometimes the knowledge within does not automatically translate into the written word as one would like . . .

. . but the Tao will have the last say!

I have a number of excuses, my laziness, my slapdash typing, my unwillingness to polish, my dyslexia.. but I also have it that many have said before - words fail at this task, it can only be.

"Words fail at this task, it can only be."

Yes indeed my friend, yes indeed!

One does the best one can . . and yours is pretty damned good, so don't sweat about it . . which, lets face it, no Taoist would!
