When a Village Embodies Tao, it is Protected

wisdom inspirations

Dear Wisdom,

Please help us to grasp the meaning of the Tao te Ching:

“When a person embodies Tao, his heart becomes true. When a family embodies Tao, it thrives. When a village embodies Tao, it is protected. When a country embodies Tao, it prospers. When the world embodies Tao, it refills its perfection.” verse 54

Please explain. By the world standards, many people, leaders, and even countries seem protected and prospering, although they are not embracing Tao or love. Is this verse a figurative or literal teaching? Are some families blessed because they live by this quote from the Tao? Thank YOU!

Care to comment, Wisdom?


When one bases their point of view on outside appearances, they can be deceived.

The truth might not be revealed until after a person dies or the country fails to pay its bills.

This era of history is starting to feel the effects of turning their backs on Tao or God and let ego take control.

Action causes a reaction.

When something large is involved, like a country, it is like cancer.

One cancer cell in the body can be controlled by the immune system.

The more cancer cells that are left alone, the system starts to break down until cancer destroys the body and dies.

The difference in a country is the individuals are systems in themselves.

Even if the majority of the country has turned away from God, a person can focus their reality based on the Divine Lord.

It doesn’t matter to them if the world chooses not to believe in God, they are rock solid in their faith.

This does not mean life is supposed to be free of problems.

It means God or Tao is one’s anchor, the core strength.

One lives because of God, and they want to share life with their Creator.

The soul is acknowledged as the more important aspect of their existence.

*One chooses to place God first in their life.

Those that place ego first in their life might seem to be winning in the 3rddimension, but this world is an illusion for the soul.

*When a human dies, they take nothing but the energy created.

The soul was hoping for more insight into God’s nature of unconditional love.

Some return with a withdrawal instead of a deposit.

Man does not realize human existence is but a blink of an eye in eternity.

The illusion of time on earth defines man with ego’s help.

When one has God for their essence, nothing in the 3rd dimension will be as important.

Do not be fooled by the illusion of the 3rd dimension.

*The reality of life is experiencing the Creator’s unconditional love.

This is truly all there is in life.

            Thank you so much, Wisdom, with joy.

            You are welcome little “shadow”.

A shadow is the exact replica of an object, an image that is identical.

Man was created in God’s image or energy.

*Think of yourself as a shadow for God.

*The more one practices unconditional love, the bigger the shadow grows.

Man does not grasp unconditional love, for human love has so many conditions attached.

Tried practicing spiritual love.

This way opens the door to true perfection.
