The Purpose of Your Inner Space

The Tao Chapter 11 – My Interpretation

Part 1

Your life begins at your core. There is where your Higher Self—your true power—resides.

Part 2

We shape clay into a pot, but it is the emptiness inside that holds whatever we want…We work with being, but non-being is what we use.

All physical forms shape around a space and the space serves a purpose. A vase holds flowers to display nature’s beauty. A plate holds food as I nourish my body. A pen holds ink so I may communicate.

All physical form shapes space with purpose.

I shape space for God to work through me.


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. I interpreted today’s yesterday and today, hence the two part interpretation.
