Mexico – Chapter 52 – National Museo de Arte

We are at the Nacional Museo de Arte in Mexico City.

I read Chapter 52 of the Tao te Ching, translated by Steven Mitchell.

“In the beginning was the Tao.”


“All things issue from it;”


“all things return to it.”

“To find the origin,
trace back the manifestations.”


“When you recognize the children
and find the mother,
you will be free of sorrow.”

“If you close your mind in judgements
and traffic with desires,
your heart will be troubled.”

A famous painting

We will return to our home. In April, I will be hiking again on the Appalachian Trail.
