A Year of the Tao – Day 22

“Without fail, the mysterious feminine reveals her presence.  Without fail, she brings us to our own perfection.”  (From A New Way of Thinking, A New Way of Being Experiencing the Tao Te Ching)

How mysterious can a mystery be if it is always revealed?  Actually, the attraction of mystery is in the eventual revelation which is often a relevation as well.

“Oh sweet mystery of life at last I’ve found thee.”  Although permanently marred by its use in the film, Young Frankenstein, nevertheless, this lyric epitomizes to me the“aha” moments, when the last puzzle piece falls into place, or the tumblers click to open the vault to the spiritual realm. 

In these times, however they may present themselves, this verse from the Tao assures me that I am not only being enlightened about the great “out there” but also about the perfection that resides within me as well.  In fact, it is perfection that is me.  Not a concept that I have embraced completely thus far but that doesn’t make it any less true.

Life is such a sweet mystery.  Revel in it and enjoy what is revealed.


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.

    The acceptance of my perfection is loving myself just the way I am. Embracing my mental, physical, emotional and spirtual being and loving myself unconditionally.
