Walking My Way - Lines 1-2

A couple of months ago, I came across a most beautiful book titled Walking the Way: 81 Zen Encounters with the Tao Te Ching by Robert Meikyo Rosenbaum.  The book is the author's rendering of the Tao Te Ching: an ancient Chinese text attributed to a sage by the name of Lao Tzu and providing a foundation to Taoism.

The words shared in this book by Rosenbaum are so rich and full of meaning that I find myself hardly moving forward in the book.  I pick up the book and savor some of the text, think about it, and write my thoughts.  When I return later, I go back again to what I've already read and written and read it all over again, think about it again, and come up with new thoughts and inspirations.  For me, this book is like a tree full of endless, tasty fruit to savor and enjoy while also nourishing the soul.
