Happy Holidays!!!


Once again, the holidays are upon us.  I must say…two posts a year from someone like me is akin to the death knell of a once-busy weblog.  It’s mostly because I don’t have anything interesting to say; therefore, I do not want to waste your precious reading time with blather.

Laying low and allowing the events to transpire around me is enough for this Taobabe.  I was given many opportunities to become part of the teams of people who are working diligently to awaken humanity, and I chickened out at the last minute on all of those opportunities.  I am not yet at the stage (emotionally and mentally) where I can lead and guide, beyond what I have been doing thus far.

Having said this, I must state for the record that life has been busy for me lately, as I go through the different iterations of my winding path through life.  It has never been a straight and narrow path. Those paths are quite often violent and unyielding, as they cut their straight and narrow way through granite mountains and dig under watercourses and swamps.  These straight as-the-crow-flies paths are well-suited only to the most strict and stringent of travelers who will allow nothing to obstruct their onward march towards their meticulously planned destination.

My path—LOL—my path is wide and winding, following the course of least resistance, and quite often, most scenic of routes.  Sometimes, even I do not know why I do the things I do.  I follow that instinct within, and explore with reckless abandon, those things that I am curious about.  Sometimes, it leads me into gullies, and sometimes, it leads me into valleys, but it always leads me somewhere interesting.  My main job, after all, is to feed the most interesting experiences back to the Universe.

Towards this goal, I say:  May your life be interesting, and may all your endeavors produce a bumper crop of experiences that you can look back at and smile with fondness.

  1. Thanks for writing, I’m always enjoying updates. I hope you don’t feel rushed to make them, busy times are natural and there’s already so much wisdom in your blog for me to contemplate on for a long time. Unexpected sidetracking is natural too sometimes, happens a lot to me also, and going with the flow is an appropriate Taoist approach. I feel you are doing what’s right, and even if it seems expectations from others try to draw you a certain way you’ll know what’s best for yourself. If there’s a right time to do something, you’ll figure it out. I just hope you’ll be back again when you can. This is my favorite blog and it’s been very inspirational, I’d love to see it continue and grow even at a patient pace. Much well wishes to you for the holidays as well.

    By the way, verse 15 of the Laozi comes to mind after I read this. What do you think?


  2. We all get to the point where we feel we’ve said it all, why say it again and again? “One who knows does not speak; one who speaks does not know.”

    And yet, when we know, we always want others to know as well, to find the inner peace in the knowledge of Tao and the nature of the holographic universe. It’s the context in which to make sense of the seemingly senselessness abounding all around us. “If only they knew…”

    I appreciate your quest.
