I’m fascinated by my choice of verses in Wayne Dyer’s book today. I like to scan the table of contents and pick the Tao Te Ching verse that speaks to me at that moment. Today it was verse 56, or as Dyer calls it, “Living by Silent Knowing”:


Dyer sums up the verse this way: Those who care the least about approval seem to receive it the most.

This jumps out at me at a time when I am contemplating my professional growth. The verse is tied to the stillness, more like silence, that I have recently found to be valuable at regular intervals in my life.

I like it.
