Chapter 1 Only

The Tao that can be spoken is not the eternal Tao

The name that can be named is not the eternal name

The nameless is the origin of Heaven and Earth

The named is the mother of myriad things

Thus, constantly with out desire, one observes its essence

Constantly with desire, one observes its manifestations

These two emerge together but differ in name

The unity is said to be the mystery

Mystery of mysteries, the door to all wonders.

Notes: Don't get stuck on the name, focus on the essence/meaning (it's Universal) and how to apply it in daily life.

How? Observe your reactions to the world. (Breathing & self reflect on recent interactions).

The problem is not the problem, it's our reaction to it that makes it good or bad!

Become a role model. How? Take every opportunity to be selflessly kind, honest and positive. Talking smack about people deletes your blessings...
