I haven’t read Osho’s book When The Shoe Fits yet, but I think I might. If you have read it, I would love to hear your thoughts, negative, positive or neutral.
I have always been interested in Taoism but absolutely confused and overwhelmed by the cryptic meanings.
It’s statements like
“The Tao never does anything, yet through it, all things are done.”
Taoism is more than just a “philosophy” or a “religion”. Taoism is more like a system of beliefs, attitudes, and practices.
Some claim that the path of understanding Taoism is simply accepting oneself. Live life and discover who you are. Your nature is ever changing and is always the same. Don’t try to resolve the various contradictions in life, instead learn acceptance of your nature.
I haven’t read any of the Tao te Ching, but it was Osho’s description of needs versus desires that really resonated with me today.
