These quotations reflect the wise mysticism of Taoism spirituality and reflects the Taoist philosopical approach to overcoming life's challenges & problems. The Tao Te Ching is an enigmatic, mystical ancient book, often called "the Taoist Bible". Written by the mystic and sage whose name is rendered in English in various forms: Lao Tse, Lao Tzu or Lao Tsu.


Gospel teaching and wise old sayings from China by the Taoism sage Lao Tzu also known as Lao tse are in agreement on this stress management principle of harmony Taking the rough with the smooth in life - Acceptance of good and bad experiences - path to peace of mind at work

The Judeo-Christian version of this Ancient wisdom is...
"Be Still and Know that  I  am God!"
(from Psalm 46 - An invitation to let go, have faith and trust in the Law of Karma)

Sometimes we slip into the role of "Playing God" in our life, or worse still, in the life of others. "Knowing what is best" for others, trying to make everyone happy and other forms of generally playing at being the "Controller of the Universe" requires immense resources and takes on huge responsibilities.

One of the key skills in letting go is to breathe consciously - deeply and slowly, in a way that stills the distressed mind and interrupts the vicious cycles of analysing and worrying that generate more and more distressed emotion and risk precipitate or unwise actions or hasty words that we may later regret. Conscious breathwork or meditating on the breath can also refresh, clarify and restore our spirits, bringing peace and renewing hope.
