4 tao experiences – part III
“To follow the way, it is day by day to decrease”, Tao-tö-king, chapter 48
Cleansing your mind means getting rid of received ideas, certainties, by regularly passing them through the sieve of questioning without complacency. The clutter of the mind is like the clutter of houses: which beliefs are really useful to us, which could we throw away? What truths do we impose on others? What variations do we refuse? Not standing still, exposing ourselves to change, being part of the cyclical dynamics of nature allows us to get rid of our fears and experience our life potential without restriction or discrimination. Unlearning the old to open up to the new, such is the meaning of this paradoxical invitation.
