Reflections on the Daodejing (Tao Te Ching) Worksheet REL/133 Version 3 1 University of Phoenix Material Reflections on the Daodejing (Tao Te Ching) Worksheet Read and reflect on the following passages. In the Comments column, comment on what the passage meant to you. Use your own experiences as examples to explain the passages. Passage Comments 1) Keep your mouth shut, Guard the senses, And life is full. Open your mouth, Always be busy, And life is beyond hope. (Chapter 52) I think this means to mind your own business, and stay out of situation you don’t belong in. As long as you avoid looking for confrontation you should live a full and happy life, but if you are opening your mouth to other peoples issues you are going to pull yourself into their problems and create chaos in your own life. Better stop short than fill to the brim. Oversharpen the blade, and the edge will soon blunt. Amass a store of gold and jade, and no one can protect it. Claim wealth and titles, and disaster will follow.
