First, Last, Always, There is the Tao.

The Universe follows the Tao.

The Tao follows only itself.

Verse #25 from the Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu
First, last and always, there is the Tao. Nothing that happens in this world or the universe is outside of the scope of the Tao. It is, was, and always will be the source from which all things come and that to which all things return. All things are from the Tao and that which is from the Tao is perfect, complete and whole.

This mean that you are perfect, complete and whole as you are in this moment. Any judgment you have about yourself that says you are a failure, ugly, stupid or whatever negative you choose to apply to yourself is just not true. You are a perfect manifestation of the Tao. Everything that you are is exactly as it was meant to be. Nothing in your life that happens is outside of the perfection known as the Tao. Everything that happens in this world is happening within the amazing symmetry of the Tao.

So does this mean we should accept all things as they are and not work to achieve change? After all if it is perfect within the Tao then we should not need to change it. However, we attempt to change things so that all things will come to know and accept their perfect harmony in the Tao. This verse is meant to remind us that all things that happen are meant to happen. So that as we move into living completely and wholly within the Tao, we accept those evens and situations that come up in our life as the perfection they are. This verse reminds that all those around us are also part of the Tao. The judgment of “right” or “wrong” and “good” and “bad” does not apply when within the Tao. All things are beautiful complete and whole that come from the Tao and all things come from the Tao.

In Love and Light
