Don’t Limit the View of Yourself

Don’t Limit the View of Yourself

Dear Wisdom,

Please help us to extract the greatest value from one of the world’s oldest and most treasured books of knowledge, The Tao te Ching:

“Don’t limit the view of yourself. Don’t despise the conditions of your birth. Don’t resist the natural course of your life. In this way you will never weary of this world”.  Verse 72

What does it mean? How can we apply this to our lives?  Thank YOU!

Care to comment, Wisdom?


This passage wants a person to focus on the benefits in their life instead of complaining of how unfair life is and how other people were favored by God.

It’s a waste of precious life for the soul when one resists the chosen path.

“Don’t limit the view of yourself” refers to people who don’t include their soul when contemplating their life. Some think life is created by them and only they can fix the problems that arise. They think the whole world rests on their shoulders. They don’t ask for spiritual help and try to micromanage life. The 3rd dimension is all that is important. There is no bigger picture than just self.

This is limiting life and a weary road to travel.

Many who look like they have everything, which means their life should be perfect, actually feel their life has no value.

*If one resists reality they become stuck and don’t move on. They create a mantra of, “ Why me”, and “Life’s not fair.”

Life wasn’t meant to be fair, perfect or just.

*It’s what you do with the roadblocks that will determine one’s sense of peace.

            Thank you so much, Wisdom, with love.

            You are welcome our little bubble.

Bubbles can be created from soap. Some have made devices that can make huge bubbles with a piece of string attached to 2 polls held.

The bubbles are beautiful but short-lived.

The bubbles are all original and different shape and sizes. Each one is uniquely perfect.

All are like these bubbles.

*Human life is so short. Why waste time pointing out supposed flaws.

Today, just enjoy your life like you would a bubble. It is perfect just the way it is right now.

Problems are teachers. Learn the lessons and move on.

A bubble lasts so briefly. Why not just enjoy the beauty.
