“The Tao” ~ “The Way”

The Tao” also called The Tao Te Ching , “The Dao” or Dao De jing, was written by Lao Tzu, an ancient Chinese philosopher. The Tao literally translated is ” the way”. It is the source of some famous Chinese sayings such as “Even a 1,000 mile journey starts with a single step”.

The Tao is often compared to water: clear, colorless, sometimes it is a wave and sometimes a little trickle, yet all beings depend on it for life, and even the hardest stone cannot stand in its way forever.

The Tao emphasizes the idea of maintaining balance, which is also a basic guiding principle in Chinese Medicine, Acupuncture and my Chicago practice.
