The Tao of Do

Do unto others as you would have done unto you and expect nothing in return.

Recently I was asked what saying has had the biggest impact on my life and practice. This is it. If I spend the rest of my life in trying to stay aware of this principle I will have led an Ok life with few interpersonal regrets. Yes it’s hard to remain in the mode that this sentence suggests. Life sometimes obstructs intention. Conditioned personality obstructs intention. But that’s life, yes? No matter what, I’m always drawn back to the power and truthfulness of this sentence. Again and yet again.

May you and all you love stay balanced.

  1. This is a variation on the Golden rule. As long as the intention is to follow this, the energy can flow out. I believe the more we practice this intentionally, the easier it becomes. The principle is simple yet we tend to get in our own way and complicate the shit out it, ah…such is life and the journey. The whispers of surrendering to our highest good is what I’m reading here which is love’s sweet intention for us all. Namaste my dear friend ❤
