A Year of the Tao – Day 58

Knowing the constant gives perspective. This perspective is impartial. Impartiality is the highest nobility. The highest nobility is Divine.”

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

 “Do you walk to school or buy your lunch?”

“Keep your arms attached to your wrists at all times and enjoy the ride.”

“We’ll know when we find out.”

“If one train leaves Cleveland at 9am going 60 miles an hour and another leaves Detroit going 70 miles an hour, what color is the conductor’s hat?”

In other words, dear reader, I got nothing on this one.  The first step is admitting I have a problem, right?

For what it’s worth this passage does somehow remind me of a totally unrelated verse from the bible that is only similar in its progression of ideas:

“Not only so, but we also glory in our sufferings, because we know that suffering produces perseverance; perseverance, character; and character, hope.” (Romans 5:3-4)

And there you have it.  Here’s hoping you have the character to persevere the suffering of watching me come to know the constant with impartiality and divine nobility.

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.
