Ursula LeGuin on the Tao Te Ching

The Taoists say there are great lessons to be learned from a calm and happy spirit. In one of her final notes in the book, Lao Tzu: Tao Te Ching: A Book about the Way and the Power of the Way, Ursula LeGuin writes that Lao Tzu is saying:


“Enjoy your life…live in your body, you are your body; where else is there to go? Heaven and Earth are one. As you walk the streets of your town you walk on the Way of Heaven.”
