A Christian Reads the Tao te Ching - The Book of Te: The highest virtue (chapters 37-38)

The Book of Te: The highest virtue (chapters 37-38)

A Christian Reads the Tao te Ching

Episode 25 looks at chapter 37 and the first part of chapter 38, which begins the second half of the Tao te Ching, called the Book of Te. We will revisit the theme of wu wei that we discussed before and look at it through the lens of effortless virtue, spontaneous goodness, or authentic spirituality.
In this episode, I start with describing just how insanely unpredictable my life has been for the last year and how an attitude of wu wei has helped me not just survive, but thrive.
The rest of the content is divided into three parts:

  1. Chapter 37 - The Tao is wu wei, and all things will be transformed in their own natural rhythms if we stay centered.
  2. Chapter 38 - High Te and low Te. The highest virtue does not hold on to virtue and acts without action.
  3. Living wu wei - Can living this way actually have any relevance for us living in the crazy world we see around us? Isn't it irresponsible?
