Walking the Tao – Chapter 78

True relationships are founded, not the sharing of mutual strengths, but on the honest sharing of vulnerabilities, doubts, and fears. In a life that is fundamentally transient and therefore contains sorrow and loss, the facade and pretense of being strong and impervious just serves to keep us from the only true strengths and solaces we have – compassion, empathy, and love.

One thought on “Walking the Tao – Chapter 78”

  1. I have had an opportunity to listen to a number of your reflections on Walking the Tao and have felt inspired by each and every one of them. I have recently been working on a project on Authentic Living and have found Chapter 78 to be one of my favorite Chapters as it speaks so beautifully of what a true relationship is. Thank you so much for all that you do to make the world a better place. Best Regards, Trudy Walsh
