It has always been.


Approach it and there is no beginning;
follow it and there is no end.

Verse 14 from the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu

The Tao has always been and will always be. It was there before there was time and it will be there when time has no meaning. It was what all things came from. You can’t not see, feel or hear the Tao. You can only see, hear and feel its manifestations. They are all around you and in you. This world, this universe is but a small piece of all that the Tao is. You cannot see the Tao as it causes the sun to rise, yet you see the sun rise. You cannot feel the Tao when your child is born, yet you feel that moment in your own heart. You cannot hear the Tao and yet you can hear the laughter of your friends around you that comes from the Tao.

Some when, at some point, there was that moment when this physical manifestation began. Whatever your beliefs around that, there was a single, solitary moment when all that we know now – began. And before that moment there was the Tao. Within it all things were possible and will always be possible. It has known no beginning, it just was endless and forever. It will know no end. Always it will be. As is your connection to it.

Because the Tao never ends, your connection to it will never end. There is not one moment in all your life that you were not a part of it. There will not be one moment in the rest of your life that you will be absent from it. You will always be within it and a part of it. It will always give you all that you need. It has all your answers. It has the answers to the questions that you haven’t even asked yet. It knows what is your best course of action and it knows exactly the thing that will support you in your life. All that you want, all that you need, all your greatest, highest good is found within the Tao. How do you bring that into the here and now? Surrender and let it flow. Become one with it. Ask for it and then let it go. Trust, faith and acceptance are the steps on the path. Follow them and they will lead you to the Tao.
