My COP15 Journal: Day Three

"She who is centered in the Tao
can go where she wishes, without danger.
She perceives the universal harmony,
even amid great pain,
because she has found peace in her heart.

Music or the smell of good cooking
may make people stop and enjoy.
But words that point to the Tao
seem monotonous and without flavor.

When you look for it, there is nothing to see.
When you listen for it, there is nothing to hear.
When you use it, it is inexhaustible."

—Lao Tsu, Tao Te Ching, Verse 35
TODAY: Sights and sounds in Copenhagen. Random messaging in the subway, the airport, newspapers, the streets.

World Leaders: "The Great Wave!" God: "It ain't mine, you figure it out."

Visualize the climate for your world.

What have YOU done for a climate agreement?
