From: The Tao de Ching by Lao Tsu

"Thirty spokes share a wheel's hub;
It is the center hole that makes it useful.
Shape clay into a vessel;
It is the space within that makes it useful.
Cut doors and windows for a room:
It is the holes which make it useful.
Therefor profit comes from what is therel;
Usefulness from what is not there."

Lao Tsu

"The softest thing in the unviverse overcomes the hardest thing in the unvierse.
That without substance can enter where there is no room.
Hence I know the value of non-action.
Teaching without words and work without doing are understood by very few."

Lao Tsu

Grace to you dear hellhound. "The way to do is to be."

Are you a Taoist Paradigm Shifter? I'd find it odd that a Taoist would surf or write political material (manifest the simple, embrace the primitive, reduce selfishness, have few desires, to quote Lao Tzu). But then Excluding m'self, I know of no non-Taoists who can quote the Classic of the Way...

Na, I like reading the Tao from time to time but I would never claim to be a Taoist...

Slightly OT, if you are a paranoid type, get ready to be even more paranoid...

Well said, Shifter. Just got word the dear soul held by so many has found her release. May she find peace in her heaven that she never found in earth, may soft sweet wondrous wisdom caress her now, as it never could before.
