from the Tao Te Ching 

Dear Friend

In a world of constant change and stress the wisdom of the Tao is a calm refuge for the mind and heart.

One big positive change that is happening for Anam Cara is that we are relocating back to Westchester County, NY this summer. We'll miss our friends here in Cincinnati even as we look forward to finding a new home in New York where we can offer weekly programs, courses and retreats as we did in the past.

We'll be having the monthly Saturday evening meditation program at Katonah Yoga in Bedford Hills, NY on May 18th at 7pm. Everyone is welcome! Then we will begin again later in the summer after we've completed the move. Please stay in touch for information on our new location and new programs.

 Tao Te Ching by Lao-Tzu
 Stephen Mitchell, translator and editor


The supreme good is like water,
which nourishes all things without trying to.
It is content with the low places that people disdain.
Thus it is like the Tao.

In dwelling, live close to the ground.
In thinking, keep to the simple.
In conflict, be fair and generous.
In governing, don't try to control.
In work, do what you enjoy.
In family life, be completely present.

When you are content to be simply yourself
and don't compare or compete,
everybody will respect you.

Fill your bowl to the brim
and it will spill.
Keep sharpening your knife
and it will blunt.
Chase after money and security
and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people's approval
and you will be their prisoner.

Do your work, then step back.
The only path to serenity.

We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it livable.

We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.

(Note from Dorothy:  I have been offline a few days because of computer problems.  A good friend solved these, and I am once more back in business.
The wisdom of the Tao Te Ching is timeless--it lifts the spirit each time you read it.)
