Reflections from a Tai Chi Retreat in Place

Gobsmacked by the Tao

Where is the Tao?? Silly. Of course it’s right here. . . I mean right there. . . I mean. . . I don’t know what I mean. . .

Where is the Tao?

    Perfect. That could be your journal entry for the day.
    Journal entries have not been one of my strong meditations. But today is a new day and I think the following will be my entry for today and maybe the beginning of developing a new daily resource.
    I heard this on NPR. DIane Rehm quoted someone with the following
    “Not knowing is the scientific machine for discovery”

      Nice–inquiry as scientific machine.
      I also thought it appropriate that the word “gobsmacked” came to me in that moment, with it’s connotation of being astounded beyond words (“well, hush my mouth!”). A routine occurrence in this practice, don’t you think?

    Reblogged this on Brenda Prescott Muses and commented:

    I’m 2 months into a 3-month Tai Chi retreat-in-place. No wondering around Chinese mountains looking for strange guys in multi-colored robes (yes, that’s a typo, but perhaps it more precisely conveys what actually happens when one wanders around mountains). But we did make a commitment to train every day and to attend weekly 3-hour workshops. Chronicles from me and other TCers here.
