Cooperation: A Path to Esteem

The Tao Chapter 8 – My Interpretation

It is Universal all-encompassing love that flows upon all places where it is needed, even to those judged as undesired.

Appreciate what feels undesired with compassion.

Welcome what flows to you.

Embrace simplicity in your thoughts.

Show compassion at all times.

Control your ego’s need to control others.

Cling to gratitude and joy as your purpose flows through you.

Be present in the company of those you love.

Accepting with grace—even that which feels undesired—as life flows to you causes esteem to follow.


As I read Stephen Mitchell’s translation of the Tao Te Ching daily, I reflect and document my interpretation with the intention of living the Tao.
