23 Jul The Dare to Dream Podcast #34: Lessons from the Tao Te Ching to Help Us Ease Into the Flow of Life
In life, there is a time for doing, often by pushing towards a goal with determination. There is also time for stepping back, reflecting, and letting our path naturally unfold. Like the forces of nature, they are both necessary for our growth.
The Tao Te Ching is the ancient Chinese text of Taoism and the forces of Yin and Yang, a philosophical concept that has become increasingly alluring as we seek guidance to help us find the flow between extremes.
As two young lads in the pursuit of meaning, we’ve found that there are incredible lessons to be gleaned from this text. What we find captivating about Taoism is its positive nature, its reliance on reconnecting with the source and flow of life, the Tao, and its sheer simplicity. Anybody can pick up the Tao Te Ching and have their life changed profoundly. We hope this podcast gives you an entertaining introduction!
We also discuss:
—Looking at our challenges from a different perspective
—Cultivating patience when life doesn’t unfold on our timetable
—Shining a positive spin on the question, “what if?”
—Greg’s experience at Toastmasters!
—It’s okay, even necessary, to be the outlier in a crazy world
