The Tao of Romance - 15oct22
In the 1990’s I stumbled upon Fritjof Capra’s “The Tao of Physics.” Could there also be a Tao of Romance, for it, too, is mysterious and puzzling?
A reoccurring theme in the Tao Te Ching is that the web of life, with all its needs, desires, complications, and complexities could best be navigated by neither indulging our controlling tendencies, nor by scattered bumbling, but rather by allowing our choices, utterances, and deeds to lovingly flow from through centered spontaneity. And that simplicity could be a byproduct of an effective meditation practice that slices through the chaos of desires, dreads, circumstances and needs, like Obi Wan’s Light Saber through Darth Maul’s gut.
If our relationship with the Tao could help us to flow through the treacheries of statecraft, economics, and combat, then the complexities of the heart, and the bed chamber, could be child’s play. Practice the essential meditation of the Tao, every twelve hours. Set space for the Tao’s romantic advice to come to you (of its own accord) like an aloof kitty; and you too could meditate like a Jedi.
