Tao Te Ching: Chapter : 20 : wandering = foot note 

look at the picture ….. is some thing happens in the mouth ….

most of us will say ….. some water accumulates in our mouth … 

why so ?

to be precise it happens because we have tasted lemon some time in our life so we know the taste …… so is the taste of Tao .. …. from the time of new born child till the age of 3 we live in timelessness ……

most of the humans do not have any memory till this age as in timelessness no memory get formed …… after 3 years logical brain which is in time get activated we start forming our memories ….. 

this taste of timeless is the taste of TAO …… in many religions we give it names like God , OM , ALLAH , or name of our choice…

and this taste of timeless happiness or oneness we lose as ego develops and and we search them in materialistic wealth and failed there we start searching in different spiritual practices this taste of timeless Tao …… 

taste of present ….. present is timelessness and past and future are taste of time …… as we can feel present but can not say it so also is TAO ….GOD , OM , ALLAH …. all these are taste we have tasted before that is the reason when ever we become like a new born child we are in timeless happiness …..and one with nature and Tao …… 

that is exactly Lao Tzu explains that I am like a new born child and nourished by nature …..

people try to give value to life forgetting life it self is most valuable ….. 

in words of my mother …..she used to say most valuable diamond is inside and with very tiny diamond of very little value we wear outside to put a tag of some false value … 

so be extraordinary inside and ordinary outside is ….. true wandering …

Love all .

Tao Te Ching: Chapter : 20 : wandering

Tao Te Ching: Chapter : 20 : wandering
What’s the difference between yes and no?

What’s the difference between beautiful and ugly?

Must one dread what others dread?
Oh barbarity! Will it never end?

Other people are joyous, like on the feast of the ox,
Like on the way up to the terrace in the spring.

I alone am inert, giving no sign
Like a newborn baby who has not learned to smile.

I am wearied, as if I lacked a home to go to.
Other people have more than they need,

I alone seem wanting.
I have the mind of a fool,
Understanding nothing.

The common people see clearly,
I alone am held in the dark.
The common people are sharp,
Only I am clumsy,
Like drifting on the waves of the sea,
Without direction.
Other people are occupied,

I alone am unwilling, like the outcast.
I alone am different from the others,

Because I am nourished by the great mother.
