Tenets of universal Taoist wisdom: Making life roll more smoothly

In your interface with others you have two main mode options: judgement or compassion. It’s easy to fall into judgement mode without even realising it, thinking this one’s a tosser, that one’s a loser and so on – and it can be quite fun for a moment or two.

However whenever you do, whenever you indulge it, you’re eliciting a cycle of cause and effect that will result in others judging you and, more profoundly, you judging yourself.

The effect of this will be a feeling of diminishment for both you and them.

And as we all want to feel bigger, not smaller, this approach bears no real long-term benefit.

If, on the other hand, you exercise compassion instead, whereby you see yourself and everyone else as children in the playground, each riddled with complexes and self-doubt, yet somehow doing the best they can, you’re then able to see through to the pure, shining, unadulterated spirit in each and that will elicit a feeling of expansion for you and them, thereby opening the possibility for more opportunities to flow in all directions.

It’s a discipline but once you get in the swing of it, your life rolls far more smoothly in every respect.

I wish you a smooth roll today.

Love, B
