Cotswold Way – Chapter 2

We walk on the Cotswold Way in England. Today we walk from Winchcombe to the Killskiney Inn near Dowdeswell.

We pass the Winchcombe War Memorial (World War I).

I read Chapter 2 of the Tao te Ching, translated by Steven Mitchell.

“When people see some things as beautiful,
other things become ugly.”

Fog in the morning

“When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.”

“Being and non-being create each other.
Difficult and easy support each other.”

“Long and short define each other.”

“High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.”

“Therefore the Master
acts without doing anything”

“and teaches without saying anything.”

“Things arise and she lets them come;
things disappear and she lets them go.”

Our lodging at the Killarney Inn is. 1.3 miles off the Cotswold Way, a dangerous road walk at the end of the day

“She has but doesn’t possess,
acts but doesn’t expect.”

“When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever.”
