The Tao

An interpretation of the Tao Te Ching, via Bird on the Moon:
"If you can talk about it, it ain't Tao.
If it has a name, it's just another thing.

Tao doesn't have a name.
Names are for ordinary things.

Stop wanting stuff. It keeps you from seeing what's real.
When you want stuff, all you see are things.

These two statements have the same meaning.
Figure them out, and you've got it made."
And, no, it is not me translating it, even though it says "stuff" several times. Some people think I say "stuff" and "things" way too much. And stuff.

Stone,Appreciate the ex2;enga.c20hFor a start if the stock of money meant nothing to anyone then it would not be contested to tax it away and so we would not be having this discussion”I submit it is not the stock of money, it is the net decreased flow of incomes that (at least here in US) the income and payroll taxes effect that motivate ‘tea parties” and the general contempt for taxes by the middle to lower income households. We in US are currently grossly over-taxed. Govt representatives can quickly remedy this.Resp,

Any tragedy during Pakistan continues to worsen mainly because relief equipment and facilitate fall far in need of what is desirable. More facilitate is anxiously needed when the potential for many fatalities starts out to loom.
