Tao Te Ching Chapter 20-11 Fool


Today's Tao

I am the heart of a fool! Chaotic! (Ch.20)


Like water and a baby, a fool is close to Tao.

Chaos is a harmony beyond our comprehension.

We don't need Shakespearean fools to tell us the truth.

We look like fools when we tell the truth.

Especially when you talk about Tao the most honestly and precisely, we sound like fools.

That's why Lao Tzu says:

"If he doesn't laugh, it is not worth being Tao." (Ch.40)

Stop trying to be accepted.

Start saying:

"Do you laughing at me?

"Do you laughing at me?

"Thank you.

"Thank you very much".
