Winning the Race of Life

The Tao Chapter 41 – My Interpretation

Upon learning about the universal laws of life…

The wise embodies it.

The tepid vacillates about it.

The arrogant despises it.

Why?

It is easier to follow the mind (ego, flesh, desires) by exerting force, assuming control and charging ahead. It is challenging to follow the soul (the light within) by reflecting authentic power, releasing the need to control and being still. Yet, it is the latter that radiates purity, brings forth strength and awakens wisdom.

Better to be fed by your soul than devoured by your ego.


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.
