19 Nov Just today I will pay attention to how many times I label
Labelling. It feels natural to begin with Tao. I only finished the book after 6, 7 years since first encounter. A book like that cannot be read, anyway. Can only be felt, merged with. For a long time I thought the first verse, grasped properly, would be enough to change the world as we know it. I often had the image of Lao Tzu, when stopped at the gate (as the story says), writing this first verse and then handing it in… naturally. Only at others’ insistence writing the rest of the ‘Tao’. I’m certain this legend is true. It must be.
