They say to cling to the Tao like a shadow, but to move without a shadow. To move with the Tao as if I am it’s spirit angel, but to move through life without any wake of debris.
I really am not sure, being human, that I can move through this life without a wake. Everything has a wake in the material world. I am not THE Tao, I am one with the Tao–different. Even birds leave an indistinguishable wake in the air as they fly, boats on a lake, me talking through life. My hope and goal and practice is that it is a good “wake”–ha! That when i am remembered, it is for a smile, or a laugh, or a kind word.
But today Dear One, I want to cling to you like Your shadow, stepping in Your steps immediately as You lift Your precious foot. Hiding behind you like a gigglng game. Wrapping myself around Your shoulders when You face the Light. Whispering in Your ear about my endless love.
