In the 1st Chapter of the Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu shows us the way of the Tao is a way of “not knowing.” Most of us are taught growing up that the first thing we do is label – good or bad, etc. We were taught to identify and structure every situation, person, place, or thought so we could apply the highest level of perceived control. The way of the Tao is the opposite. Letting ourselves not know, not label or name, be powerless.
Here is a link to an online version of the Tao Te Ching that we use in every meeting; https://ttc.tasuki.org/display:Year:1972,1988,1996,2004/section:1
