Tao Te Ching Chapter 16-8 Constancy

Today's Tao

Going back to the destiny is called constancy. (Ch.16)

"Destiny" is a misleading word.

Do you agree if I say, "You create your own destiny"?

Then, do you agree if I continue, "but you are not responsible for it"?

"Going back to the destiny" means "accepting your destiny".

If you accept it, you are constantly one with Tao.

-What else can you call it? Destiny, isn't it? Or, is it their fault to be in a wrong place at a wrong time? One Black Rain created an ordeal in a girl's life. Another Black Rain created a group of powerful men without laws. Do we have the courage to say it all took place in our mind?
