Tao Te Jing = 2……Abstraction

When beauty is abstracted
Then ugliness has been implied;
When good is abstracted
Then evil has been implied.

So alive and dead are abstracted from nature,
Difficult and easy abstracted from progress,
Long and short abstracted from contrast,
High and low abstracted from depth,
Song and speech abstracted from melody,
After and before abstracted from sequence.

The sage experiences without abstraction,
And accomplishes without action;
He accepts the ebb and flow of things,
Nurtures them, but does not own them,
And lives, but does not dwell.

wisdom notes = 2
Age is dewelling in time
and time is a ever changing
horizontal dimension measured
by motion of Sun between
East and West so abstractions
of duality in nature.
Sage is living in timelessness
and timeless is never changing
vertical dimension and alignment
of soul with north which is neutral zero…..
now…. so experiences oneness with cosmic spirit.
