Today in Religion class, we went over Daoism. This is from one of their sacred texts, the Dao Te Tsing (or spelled Tao Te Ching):
“She who knows, does not speak. She who speaks, does not know. I do not know.”
As we interpreted it, if you know something, you can’t say it. As soon as you name something, you give it limits. We will never know everything.
I am not androgynous. I am not a female, nor a male. I can’t be limited by terms and social connotations.
My resolve: the word that describes me is… “me.”
It’s hard and it hurts to explain myself, but that’s all I have. I guess that’s all I need.
What’s your experience?
