The ancient Greeks wrote of “the Logos” as the guiding principle behind all of reality. Was this their idea? John’s Gospel begins, “In the beginning was the Word.” Did he think this up? The Egyptians spoke of Toth as the guiding word, and son, of the supreme god, Osiris. Where did they get this idea? When Lao Tse, in east-central China, wrote his Tao Te Ching he gave us great detail of the Tao – the Word – guiding all things under Heaven. How did all these people, in all these places, get the same idea all these thousands of years ago? My book, The Tao of Prayer, gets deep into living into this Word, Logos, and Tao. The blog considers a little of what it means, day by day. Welcome!
