    S3E9 - S3E9 The Tao is elusive

    S3E9 - S3E9 The Tao is elusive

    Cup of Tao Season 3 Episode 9 The Tao is elusive


    Hosted by Chris L McClish




    In 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.
