Tao Te Ching By Lao Tzu

 

Background Information

 

Tao Te Ching is a spiritual classic and is amongst the most translated works in world literature. According to tradition, it was written around 6th century B.C. by the Chinese sage Lao Tzu (literally meaning “Old Master”), a record-keeper at the Zhou dynasty court, although the text’s true authorship and date of composition are still debated.

 

Wikipedia provided several possible translations of the book’s title:

 

Dào/Tao literally means “way”, or one of its synonyms, but was extended to mean “the Way”. This term, which was variously used by other Chinese philosophers, has special meaning within the context of Taoism, where it implies the essential, unnamable process of the universe.

 

Dé/Te means “virtue“, “personal character,” “inner strength” (virtuosity), or “integrity”. Jīng/Ching as it is used here means “Law”, “Canon”, “Rules” or “Instruction”. Thus, Tao Te Ching can be translated as “The Way and the Power of The Law”, “The Road and the Strength of The Rules/Instructions”, etc.

 

Tao Te Ching is a short text of around 5,000 Chinese characters in 81 brief chapters or sections. It has two parts, the Tao Ching (chapters 1–37) and the Te Ching (chapters 38–81). The written style is brusque or to the point, has few grammatical particles, and encourages diverse, even contradictory interpretations. The ideas are singular; the style poetic. The rhetorical style combines two major strategies: short, declarative statements and intentional contradictions. The first of these strategies creates memorable phrases, while the second forces us to create our own reconciliations of the supposed contradictions. Read more

The New Business Paradigm

 

The new business paradigm is based on creating or producing for the highest good of the community and the planet. As most people will be living at a fifth-dimensional level, there will be an emphasis on cooperation, seeing the best in others and empowering them, offering excellence and each person contributing in a way that makes their heart sing. Those businesses that honor everyone concerned and actively promote the good of animals, the Nature kingdom and humanity will continue to be successful during the transition period.

 

Fairness and Integrity

 

The economies are collapsing because the planet has moved up in frequency and the cogs of old and new are no longer in sync. In order for them to synchronize, the world economy must move at a faster frequency, in other words with more honor, openness, honesty and fairness.

 

The system will continue to collapse and evolve until an economic structure based on fairness and integrity is in place. Then this too will dissolve as money ceases to have relevance after 2050. Read more
