lol the narrator sounded like a robot, but a very interesting post.
The Tao ("Dao") is often referred to as the "Way". What the "Way" is, is a mystery, but it seems to be like the universal law that you cannot find and pinpoint and nail down. It just is.
What the fundamental aspect to it is, is that it supports DUALITY.
for one thing to exist, it needs its opposite to intertwine with.
my interpretation is central to my own political philosophy in that man's quest sto solve many 2 original and real problems led to the creation of 200,000,000,000 problems that increase by the hour
people dont realize that every single catastropic incident in human history begins with people decided how things should be and executing.
It's like the piss drinking analogy, your roam a desert thirst, but start drinking your piss to quench your thrust. Only it makes you thirstier until you die from and attempt to survive.
Saying true to original nature and understanding balance is the key. Not seeking it cause then you'll never find it, but understanding it or acknowledging it.
so freedom from desire, freedom from self worship and freedom from judgement are were this understanding begins.
there's no good and evil there's no beautiful and ugly, theres no idea or ideal that real there's no should be or shouldn't be and your mortality isn't supreme to anything.
