Namaste Deepak,Menas & everyone,

I am fascinated with The principle of Yin & Yang & it is fascinating what Menas has said about it in one of the videos that is part of the YATU on line course, consciousness, science & the nature of reality. I would like to review that section of the video, If anyone knows which video that was, please let me know.

Somehow the Tao has always been here & always will be here & Yes I consider the creation process of the universe to be connected to my own creativity & experience this as wei wu wei: “action without action” or “effortless doing”.

“There was something formless and perfect
before the universe was born.
It is serene. Empty.
Solitary. Unchanging.
Infinite. Eternally present.
It is the mother of the universe.
For lack of a better name,
I call it the Tao.

It flows through all things,
inside and outside, and returns
to the origin of all things.

The Tao is great.
The universe is great.
Earth is great.
Man is great.
These are the four great powers.

Man follows the earth.
Earth follows the universe.
The universe follows the Tao.
The Tao follows only itself.”

Tao Te Ching
Written by Lao-tzu
From a translation by S. Mitchell
