Walking the Tao – Chapter 13

What if there were no such ideas as “success” and “failure?” What if actions were merely actions and results were merely results? What if many of the loaded words in our culture were stripped of their accumulated meanings – success, failure, sickness, health, life, death? They seem like such powerful and real things, but perhaps they are simply words that have been granted far too much importance.

One thought on “Walking the Tao – Chapter 13”

  1. WOW! This is a big, beautiful, benevolent teaching, Bill! The clinging to a story, a result, an expectation is where I have suffered. Thanks for the reminder that it all just is…until it isn’t!
    Retraining the mind is no small thing! Peace and joy!
