The Tao is elusive
Cup of Tao Season 3 Episode 9 The Tao is elusiveHosted by Chris L McClishIn this episode: I discuss how the Tao seems to elude us just when we think we have hope and maybe some answers to our ultimate questions - and when we lose hope and fall into nihilism, the Tao seems to give us glimpses of hope and faith. I will be reading from the Crispin Sartwell 2016 version of the Tao Te Ching Chapter 38. After discussing this, I take a short break and then answer a question from Joe who resides in Manchester, England, who is writing me about his fear of being judged by others.Cup of Tao is a production of CoachCMC LLCFor sponsorship information, please visit chrismcclish.com.Social Media I'm on Twitter @coachcmc.
