YESTERDAY is history - TOMORROW is a mystery -
TODAY is a gift - that's why they call IT the PRESENT
"Stand before IT and there IS NO BEGINNING
Follow IT and there IS NO END
Move with the PRESENT
Ignoring knowledge is sickness"
TAO - meaning "The Way" - refers to a power that envelops, surrounds and flows through all things, both living and sentient. It regulates natural processes and nourishes balance in the Universe. But, in the words of the Sage - it's "Name is Formless".
This means that any exploration of it starts
from a position of ignorance, and any journey
we undertake to reach an understanding of it
is of necessity entirely personal.
"Just as it is impossible to grasp the TAO intellectually or through some logical
intuitively. There is a kind of "a-ha" experience when the body responds to
the eternal flow. However much one practices, without that inner knowing there
is no awareness of the symbolic meaning of the movements. This shift in
consciousness allows most of the blocks to the awareness of more esoteric
matters to be removed.
As a result, we become reconnected to and original insight, the Tao, which
allows us to gain access to, and IS the working and the wonder of, the cosmos."
Pamela Ball "The Essence of Tao"
