Two Thousand Four Hundred Years after it was Composed, as Individuals, we Need the Tao Te Ching’s Teachings in the Path of our Self-Awareness more than Ever.
One of the Hypothesis around the Tao Te Ching Origin is that Lao Tzu simply Translated “Old Masters” Teachings into One Book before that the Name of Masters and their Teachings Would Have Been Lost Forever.
The Tao Te Ching by Lao Tzu, or Book of the Way, is an Ancient Collection of 81 Wisdom Verses at the Base of Daoism/Taoism that Refer to the Principles of Organization of our Universe since the Moment before of its Creation, also Known as the Universal Units of Consciousness or UC.
The Tao Te Ching is Somewhat like the Bible for Daoism/Taoism and it is Considered a Sacred Text: it Gives Instructions on How to Live a Good and Positive Life. It Concerns the “Dao/Tao” or the “Way” of the World, which is also the Path to Virtue, Happiness, and Harmony: “the Great Dao is very Even, but People Like to Take by-Ways.” In its 81 Verses Lao Tzu Delivers Teachings around How to Live in the World throughout the Path of Wisdom in a World where many People still Believe it such an Impossible or far from Ordinary Thing.
The Tao Te Ching is a Reminder that Today, as then, Every One of us Has a Choice to Practice Self-Awareness and Exercise on their own Consciousness Conscious to Be Unit of Consciousness in the Positive Co-Creation of the World, the One.
In Fact, in the Tao Te Ching it Appears also Metaphysical Teachings that Today Could Be Linked to the Modern Quantum Physic and the Law of Relativity by Albert Einstein: Before the Beginning, Before Space and Time, in Every Present Moment there is just Pure Consciousness. Consciousness has Neither Pattern or Form, only Awareness. Then Consciousness has Always a Thought which Unfold into Countless Dimensions Known as Units of Consciousness and liked to each of the 81 Teachings: the Path.
The Tao is Beyond the Capacity of Ordinary Knowledge and the Human Intellect, yet “One may See Tao of Heaven without Looking Through the Window” as Abstraction. The Primary Meaning of Tao is just to Create a Path: a Way of Understanding of the Nature and the Nature of Things, to Exercise and to Develop Self-Awareness and Consciousness around our Role and our Place into the World.
Heaven or Tien is a Sacred Power and the Source of the Everything in the World. This Tien is Neutral/Impersonal, but it Exists like a Hidden Positive and Moral Force that Rewards Good and Punishes Evil. The Concept of Heaven is Known as Tao as the Ultimate Principle of the Universe.
