Weekly Tao Te Ching Verse - Week #24

Hope everyone had a Merry Christmas, a Happy Hannukah, or Happy Kwanzaa. Or whatever other holiday floats your boat this time of year. Although I no longer consider myself a Christian, I do celebrate Christmas since I was raised Christian and family traditions around the Christmas Holiday.

I taught my last "community" class at 3Sisters at least on Friday nights because it will conflict with my Sober Yogi class I teach at Soul Stretch in Westlake. I also taught my weekly Fitworks class as well as subbing on Wednesday night. I am now over 50 hours of teaching since getting certified. Still have a long way to go as a Yoga instructor but so much better than when I was first certified. Still need to find my voice in terms of expressing and talking about themes. Well themes with a spiritual bent anyway.

Also watched the Browns win, by a miracle, win their first game of the season. It felt like a playoff win even though it'll probably hurt us in the draft. Then Ken, George, Arisa and I went to see Rogue One on Christmas Eve. Elly arrived at 8 in the morning on Christmas day, the best Christmas present possible! I will post separately about our Christmas indulgences.

Welcome to this week's Tao Te Ching verse. See here for what this is all about. 

Verse 24
He who stands on tiptoe
doesn't stand firm.
He who rushes ahead
doesn't go far.
He who tries to shine
dims his own light.
He who defines himself
can't know who he really is.
He who has power over others
can't empower himself.
He who clings to his work
will creat nothing that endures.
If you want to accord with the Tao,
just do your job, then let go.
