A Quote by Mark Hathaway on tao, wisdom, cosmos, harmony, and right relationship

The Tao of Liberation is a search for wisdom, the wisdom needed to effect profound transformations in our world. We have chosen to describe this wisdom using the ancient Chinese word Tao, meaning a way or path leading to harmony, peace, and right relationship. The Tao can be understood as a principle of order that constitutes the common ground of the cosmos; it is both the way that the universe works and the fl owing cosmic structure that cannot be described, only tasted. The Tao is the wisdom that lies at the very heart of the universe, encapsulating the essence of its purpose and direction.

A Quote by Osho on tao

in

Shankara commented on Krishna, on the Upanishads, on the Brahma Sutras. Ramanuja commented on the ancient enlightened people, Vallabha did the same. It has always been so in the East, because much dust gathers as time passes. Now, the Upanishads were written in a totally different world. That man has disappeared, that mind has disappeared, that world no more exists.

"Kempowski war doch ein Spion", meldete die Frankfurter Allgemeine Zeitung, nachdem der amerikanische Germanist Alan Keele den Akten des US-Geheimdienstes CIC Anhaltspunkte für eine Agententätigkeit des jungen Walter Kempowski entnommen hatte. Um die Wahrheit über diesen Fall ans Licht zu bringen, hat TITANIC mit dem Geheimdienstkenner und Romancier John le Carré gesprochen.

A Quote by Sir Francis Bacon on tao

in

Now therefore we come to that third sort of discredit or diminution of credit that groweth unto learning from learned men themselves, which commonly cleaveth fastest: it is either from their fortune, or from their manners, or from the nature of their studies. For the first, it is not in their power; and the second is accidental; the third only is proper to be handled; but because we are not in hand with true measure, but with popular estimation and conceit, it is not amiss to speak somewhat of the two former. The derogations therefore which grow to learning from the fortune or condion of learned men, are either in respect of scarcity of means, or in respect of privateness of life and meanness of employments.

Francis Bacon (1561 - 1626)

A Quote by Benjamin Hoff on presence, appreciation, gratitude, attitude, and tao

"When you wake up in the morning, Pooh," said Piglet at last, "what's the first thing you say to yourself?"
"What's for breakfast? said Pooh. "What do you say, Piglet?"
"I say, I wonder what's going to happen exciting today?" said Piglet.
Pooh nodded thoughtfully.
"It's the same thing," he said.

Through working in harmony with life's circumstances, Taoist understanding changes what others may percieve as negative into something positive.

A Quote by Benjamin Hoff on belonging, tao, taoism, self, wisdom, and intuition

Everything has its own place and function. That applies to people, although many don't seem to realize it, stuck as they are in the wrong job, the wrong marriage, or the wrong house. When you know and respect your Inner Nature, you know where you belong. You also know where you don't belong.

The MIBs looked the same, as if they were identical twins, their skin was smooth and featureless, no beard and no sign that they ever needed to shave at all. Their hair was shiny black, each brushed in the same style and not a hair out of place, their black suits, seemingly brand new, fitted perfectly as if tailor-made and having razor-sharp creases. Their ties and socks were also black, exactly the same black as their trousers and jackets They were Men in Black (MIB).

A Quote by unknown on tao

in

Da Bienen nur zur ihrer Verteidigung stechen, sollten Sie sich einem Bienenstock vorsichtig nähern. Grelle Farben erregen ihre Aufmerksamkeit, weshalb sich Kleidung in neutralen, hellen Farben empfiehlt. Wenn Sie durch Geruch oder Farben auf die Biene wie eine Blume wirken, wird sie angelockt und versucht Pollen zu sammeln. Kurz nach dem Stich jedoch muss die Biene sterben, da ihr Stachel mit dem dazugehörigen Schaft und Muskelapparat (also nahezu der gesamte Hinterleib) in der Haut des Menschen (oder des Tiers) steckenbleibt.
Since bees only sting to their defense, you should join a beehive cautious approach. Bright colors attract their attention, which is why clothes in neutral, light colors is recommended. If you smell or color on the bee as a flower effect, it will be attracted and tries to collect pollen. Shortly after the sting, however, the bee must die, because their sting associated with the shank and muscular apparatus (ie, almost the entire abdomen) in the skin of the human (or animal) stuck.

A Quote by Ann Druffel on tao

in

Most of the several entities who allegedly abducted Sara Shaw and Jan Whitley, were about five feet high, though at least one was somewhat taller. Compared to humans´, their bodies were "very slim". The very tall door of the luminescent, whitish "ship" that hovered over trees in a gully some 100 to 150 yards from the cabin of Sara and Jan, was a mere opening in the side. Sara described its shape as being "like the planet with the rings", i.e. Saturn -- a shape not uncommonly reported in UFO literature.
