The Tao Te Ching is a Chinese classic, said to have been written by the 6th Century sage Lao Tze. The Tao Te Ching is translated as “the Way of Virtue” or “the Way of Integrity”. It is composed of 81 stanzas, which are intended to help and support individuals in the unfolding of their life purpose and potential. According to the ancient teachings, the Tao is our ordinary consciousness; it cannot be understood as “God” in the ordinary sense, but it does express the concept of “something” eternal upon which all things depend, and which does not abandon them. It has a reality and presence but does not have any visible action or form. The Tao
is the flow or movement of an Active Intelligence that gives life, unfolds and transforms everything that is; for this reason, it has been defined as the Watercourse Way because Lao Tze used the flow of water as the main metaphor to describe it. According to the Tao, all things are related to each other following the concept of “mutual arising” in order to establish the harmony of the Universe, since, as Alan Watts describes, “every process in the world can ‘do its thing’ only in relation to all the others”.
