A Year of the Tao – Day 25

“Serve the needs of others, and all your own needs will be fulfilled.”  

(From A New Way of Thinking, A New Way of Being Experiencing the Tao Te Ching)


Despite what I think I need, the deepest desires of my heart have nothing to do with me. 

Significance, success, status, stability and solvency are illusions masquerading as valid requirements of a satisfying life.

As long as I hold on to the belief that I am what I do, who I know, or what I have, I will hold the key to the self-imposed sentence of suffering under the tragedy of this error. 

When I open the door to the realities of living a life that begins and ends with love—of God, and others as myself—I discover I already possess all that I ever wanted…far beyond my wildest dreams.

Imagine…I hope you’ll join me.


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.
