Nonsensical Words of a Wordsmith

Fractal-Tao

As a bona-fide, proud card-carrying wordsmith member, I cringe every time I open up the Tao Te Ching, and the first words of Chapter 1 pops up at me:

The Tao that can be spoken is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named is not the eternal name…

As a wordsmith, the written word is my playground.  Anything I wanted to express, I could easily do so simply by tapping on my keys and displaying the contents of my mind in various eclectic, artistic formations.  I have hit a wall, however in my varied and relentless attempts to grasp and comprehend the Tao.

Lucky for me, the ancients have figured out a way to do this, and the scientists of our times are also in on the secret. (more…).

  1. Its so odd. I feel “empowered” and yet I’m not doing the things in my life I should be. Its like I’m enlightened but not enlightened at the same time.

    Why would a person knowingly be that way.

    I have plenty of connections and yet sometimes feel out of the water.

  2. Sorry. I’ve been trying to deal with a few major crises in my life. I’ll get back into the swing of things as soon as I stabilize my life. I promise.
