This morning, I brought one of my favorite Taoist books with me to read on the rocks by the sea (just got splashed! Haha)

A passage that really resonated today is from verse 52:

In the beginning was the Tao.

All things issue from it;

all things return to it.

To find the origin,

trace back the manifestations.

from “Tao te Ching” by Stephen Mitchell

This passage reminded me of two questions from my first book,Meditative Questions,” which I’ve added here (images from the ebook) for your own contemplation:

Namasté and love,
