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. People will get trapped in word games over the meaning of these six aspects of life. At times we are left wordless and without meaning because we change dramatically from life events such as midlife crisis. Or even worse, we waste time to argue with others because your definitions are different. As a Taoist, the lesson is to understand the meaning is personal and will change over time. To not waste time in matching meanings from other people but to embrace meaning that comes out from 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.
