A Christian Reads the Tao te Ching - A very bland episode (chapters 34, 35, and 41)

A very bland episode (chapters 34, 35, and 41)

A Christian Reads the Tao te Ching

Episode 23 looks at chapters 34-35 and 41, which rehearse some of our old paradoxical themes about the Tao but also bring in two key truths that, in classic non-dual fashion, seem to contradict each other at first. First, those who are touch with the Tao draw all people to themselves; but second, words about the Tao are bland, tasteless, and unappealing.

In this episode, I start by contemplatively commenting on some of the long list of paradoxes in chapter 41, bringing them directly into dialogue with Jesus.

The rest of the content goes through the primary points:

  1. Chapter 34 - Recapping the Tao as all-pervasive and self-giving
  2. Chapter 35a - The person in touch with Tao will draw all things to themselves
  3. Chapter 35b - The Tao is bland and tasteless
  4. Chapter 41 - Lao Tzu's version of the "Parable of the Sower"
