Seeing them as one shows us that:
What's superior isn't clearly obvious, and what's inferior isn't clouded in doubt.

Goodnight’ “May the stillness of the night bring you peace. The purity of the snow renew your spirit. And as you witness the sun’s light, reflect off the moon, may you remember that you are never alone.” ~Matthew C.

Hard to believe that less than 4 months ago I was using a walker to get around and today I was able to walk out to see this magnificent view on Lake Crescent. At several points I wanted to give up but my best friend @sequimming wouldn’t let me. Between her wonky hip and my sketchy knee we were quite a sight but we just kept putting one foot in front of the other 😆 Lao-tzu said that a journey of 1000 miles begins with a single step. Today was a good first step (well, actually closer to 7500 steps 🤪.) #pnw #aging #taoteching #punchbowl #lakecresent #movemore #sprucerailroadtrail #laotzu #taoism #olympicnationalpark #walkinthewoods #getoutside #gratefulformobility #friends👭#lakecresent #devilspunchbowl

“Women are like snowflakes, their beauty is in their uniqueness. No matter size or shape they are individually etched into perfection. The closer you look, the more you can see the combination of strength, fragility, and form that makes them more spectacular than anything else on this planet.” ~Matthew C.

The Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu is my favorite book. I have read it countless times and learn something new every time. #67 is my favorite section. This post contains a small but important portion of #67. (The Stephen Mitchell translation is my favorite version.) I hope you enjoy it. Take care and stay safe. It's dangerous out there with all the snow.

I was sad two years ago.
I hated myself last year.
I am trying to seek who I am this year. Also reading more classics is another goal. 😉 // 아무래도 난 노자가 필요하다. 근데 한글로된건 중국 원서 읽는 느낌인데 영어로된건 얕은 느낌. 하여튼 올해는 고전을 좀 읽어보려고해요.
다들 즐독! ❤️

#januarywitch Day 18: Sacred Space

So, I'm an animist, follower of Taoist philosophy, and folk witch, which means that I don't readily distinguish between sacred and mundane. Everything is enspirited; everything has magical value. It's just a matter of looking closely enough to discover what that is. And the more natural and humbler something is, the closer it is to the Way -- that is, the natural way of things as well as the wakeful and generative force of the universe -- which means that a lot of my tools and processes are fairly raw: direct, unrefined, based on instinct and insight, while also consciously crafted.

The two images here are passages from the Tao Te Ching -- The Book of the Way and Its Power, a book that has been a formative influence in my life. The first poem asserts that it's not an object itself but the empty space(s) within that define it and give it value. Similarly, the second poem expresses the importance of making space within, or hollowing oneself, in meditation -- which makes it possible for me not only to see clearly and expansively but also to perceive and receive spirits and energy into my body, the foundation for the kind of magical work I do.

So the most essential sacred space for my spiritual and magical work is the one I make within myself: opening and emptying to become a vessel and translator of power. That makes everything else I do possible.

Wei wu wei, doing, not-doing. Effortless action. The central teaching of the Tao Te Ching. Be where you are, do what you are doing and dissolve into the doing. This is formlessness.

~
Nothing in the world
is as soft and yielding as water.
Yet for dissolving the hard and inflexible,
nothing can surpass it.
~
The soft overcomes the hard;
the gentle overcomes the rigid.
Everyone knows this is true,
but few can put it into practice.
~
Therefore the Master remains
serene in the midst of sorrow.
Evil cannot enter his heart.
Because he has given up helping,
he is people's greatest help.
~
True words seem paradoxical.
~

“The question is not how you can become great: the question is how you can realize being greatly yourself. The paradox is that to fully realize yourself you must let go of self-centered striving and acknowledge your personal accomplishments rest on something greater than yourself. Then you can depend on the grace you have been granted.” #walkingtheway #81zenencounters #taoteching

The Sage does nothing for himself in this passing world so nothing he does ever passes.
