tao, being, taoism

what is the difference in learning about taoism
and learning about the tao?

or learning tao
and being?

  • Dmytryo   I give you formulae : 50 % teachings on Tao and 50 % what you can come up with , if you give                100 % towards teachings you diminish your individuality
    Jerry Hill if you surrender your individuality you ARE tao
    Jerry Hill individuality
    what a pregnant word!
    Don    just different words…
    John    Or…just being
    Vicki   Each person interpretes for herself.
    Lee   The written Tao is an expression of the Tao that can’t be told. We and the universe are a living expression of the eternal Tao. When we follow the Buddha-Dharma we are able to connect, live with and realise this simple living truth.
    Jerry Hill “surrender” is not exactly the right word, nor is donate. bequeath implies death and we exist in eternity… “to make a gift of” in the sense of the oath of kwan yin….. perhaps the word lao tzu uses: “serve”

apparent motion

 

from the comments on the facebook post, some people couldn’t see the apparent motion in this figure and some people could start and stop the apparent motion.  once i read that, i learned that i could stop the motion, too, but then it got harder to start it back up… what’s YOUR experience?  anyone know why i checked “math” as one of the categories?
