A Year of The Tao – Day Twelve

“Within the Tao, the sharp edges become smooth; the twisted knots loosen.” From A New Way of Thinking, A New Way of Being Experiencing the Tao Te Ching)

The sharp edges of my personality will become smooth as I dwell within the Tao, the Way and ways of God.  My mood swings will level out (being post-menopausal helps), the tendency to take and therefore react to things personally will subside, anxiety driven tirades against the “unfairness” of life exhibited by awaking to a dead car battery will diminish, and all will be well in my world.

The twisted knots of past hurts, unresolved issues, daily disappointments (in myself and in others), will loosen their grip on my personality.  The Tao provides a way out, a way up, a way simply to choose the path of freedom from all of these things.

Am I ready for this?  Oh yes.

“Every valley shall be raised up, every mountain and hill made low; the rough ground shall become level, the rugged places a plain.” (Isaiah 40:4)


About Karen Nicholson

“Gratitude bestows reverence, allowing us to encounter everyday epiphanies, those transcendent moments of awe that change forever how we experience life and the world.” ~ John Milton Writing about these moments of awe has been a driving force of my life for, well, as long as I can remember. Coupled with a devotion to sunrises and sunsets that defies explanation, a combination of the two seemed like the right thing to do. I welcome you to my world. May it be a blessing to yours.

    Mostly unknotted and untwisted, but some pangs return every now and then. You’re as ready (and prepared) as you’ll every be!
