Who we are:
The tangible aspects of our life:
Mind / Body / Heart
The reflective aspects of our life:
Soul / Spirit / Consciousness
Together these six aspects of life define a person uniquely.
Now it’s possible to mix and match definitions, get trapped in words games over the meaning of each of these six aspects of life. Or even worse, to argue with others because your definition is different. As a Taoist, the lesson is to step lightly over such games, to embrace the meaning of each aspect of life with terms that connect with your own experiences.
Our language has phrases like soul searching, spirit chasing, bodybuilding, etc., since to define our terms is live them as an ever-changing chase.
A Taoist’s path for enjoying life: is the wonder of experiencing the shifting balance of each aspect of life.
When considering exercises and practices, also consider how your practices help balance out these six aspects of living.
To become a Master: isn’t to practice one aspect of your life to peak performance, rather it’s to integrate life with each of these aspects, so none are lost.
