 ~ Tao (道) – The Way of Nature ~

“Simplicity, patience, compassion.
These three are your greatest treasures.
Simple in actions and thoughts,
you return to the Source of Being.
Patient with both friends and enemies,
you accord with the way things are.
Compassionate toward yourself,
you reconcile all beings in the world.”
― Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching

Tao or Dao: 道 is a Chinese word meaning ‘way’, ‘path’, ‘route’… In Japanese pronounced “Do” – the symbol associated with traditional arts like judo, kendo, kyudo, chado (the way of tea)…

“Tao signifies the primordial essence or fundamental true nature of the Universe (and ourselves). Tao is not a ‘name’ for a ‘thing’ but the underlying natural order… It is thus “eternally nameless” and to be distinguished from the countless ‘named’ things (visible forms and structures) which are considered to be its manifestations.”
