Overview

o The Tao Te Ching is one of the oldest and most translated books in history. Over the past 2500 years, these eighty-one rudimentary verses have been translated, interpreted, and paraphrased innumerable times-probably almost as much as the Bible.

o The true beauty of the Tao Te Ching lies in its simplicity and general lack of law, codes, or dogma. The Tao Te Ching says that true wisdom cannot simply be written in words or symbols-it must be lived and experienced. And, he who is truly wise does not even know how wise he is.

o The sage, the prophet, or enlightened one, is simply called The Person. The Person understands and appreciates his impermanence and unrelenting move to complete union with the ETERNAL SOURCE.

o The Person who is ultimately concerned about his relationship with God or ultimate reality and the possibility of reunion and centering within that source has already been grasped by the ETERNAL SOURCE. This act of grace is available to all. There is no need to ask any further questions or do anything: no words, no actions, no worship, no sacrifice. Anything additional would only distort reality. The Person who is centered within the ETERNAL SOURCE simply lives the truth, reveals the truth and is the truth.
