Tao Te Ching for Writers: Words into Dust

Sky and earth

 reflect

eternal values.

 

Inferior concepts

fall away

like ashes.

 

The wind ebbs and flows

under the sky and across

the land dissolving

words into dust.

 

Don’t talk.

Breathe life in.

(Tao Te Ching, Chapter Five,

Interpreted by Terry Chitwood)

Eternal values, like the sun, illumine the land.  Words as shadows creep away from the light until they disappear. Eternal values live in our hearts rather than our mind, fueled by feelings, anchored in a sea of love.

Uncage our hearts, releasing feelings into the world. Emissaries from deep within, our feelings connect with others, bringing forth creativity, camaraderie, and caring which spreads love far and near. “I feel it in my fingers; I feel it in my toes. Love is all around me and so the feeling grows. It’s written on the wind; it’s everywhere I go (“Love Is All Around” by The Troggs).”
