The Dao sends out many secret communiques each and every day to us. The problem is though that unless we know how to de-code them, their messages fall upon deaf ears; their wisdom goes unheard, their examples unseen. All of this is our fault. We are too busy caught up in the shallowness of our lives to pay attention. What is important we ignore, what is trivial, we celebrate and become immersed in. Thus, valuable messages are lost. What we think is vital is meaningless in the grand scheme. Seconds, minutes, years pass by in the blink of an eye and we are blind to seeing what it should all mean. All the messages are lost in translation. Then one day, we are at the end. All the time wasted and lost cannot be retrieved.
