Tao

The Way is not meant for chastisement,

but for reflection.

The Way is not meant to be endured as a trial,

but as a walk of joy.

The Way is not meant to cut the soul to pieces in condemnation,

but to grow in spiritual cultivation.

The Way is not meant to be worshiped,

but loved as a tool of self-creation.

Man is not meant to live in pain and agony,

but in love and happiness.

Man is not meant to live as a sacrificial victim,

but as a force of creation.

Man is not meant to live by violence,

but to live in peace exchanging value for value.

Man is not meant to live by faith and fear,

but by reason and love.

I am not meant to hate myself,

but to love my integral nature.

I am not meant to be lost,

but to seek and find the path of virtue.

I am not meant to merely survive and endure,

but to thrive and flourish.

I am not meant to live in failure and regret,

but to learn and succeed.

I am not meant to suffer,

but to have joy.

The purpose of the way is not suffering.

The purpose of the way is life.
