Drinking It In



The Dao in some sense is pretty black and white. It’s all about balance; yin and yang delicately dangling in the wind. There is no thaumaturgy involved; no charlatans performing tricks or deceptions. It is all there for you to see. There are no magic potions, no shining cloths hiding anything from your eyes; no pulling objects out of hats. Yet it is so amazing that there are so many who do not see this. Perhaps this is because man’s favorite pastime is fooling himself or maybe we don’t really want to know the truth. If we knew and acknowledged the truth it would be sobering. Therefore, we drink in all the illusion we can trying to drown whatever it is we are trying to drown.
