Tao Te DJ Chapter 8

The highest good is like water. Water gives life to the ten thousand things and does not strive. It flows in places men reject and so is like the Tao. In dwelling, be close to the land. In meditation, go deep in the heart. In dealing with others, be gentle and kind. In speech, be true. In ruling, be just. In daily life, be competent. In action, be aware of the time and the season. No fight: No blame.


Translation –
The music is the element that can flow in places that people cannot explain.  Feelings and reaction; joy and sadness; memories and loves – these cannot be explained.

Tao Te DJ – Chapter 7

Heaven and Earth last forever. Why do heaven and Earth last forever? They are unborn, So ever living. The sage stays behind, thus he is ahead. He is detached, thus at one with all. Through selfless action, he attains fulfillment.


Translation –
The DJ is not a participant on the dance floor. The selfless action is playing music for the crowd.  Only then will the DJ feel complete.

Tao Te DJ – Chapter 6

The valley spirit never dies; It is the woman, primal mother. Her gateway is the root of heaven and Earth. It is like a veil barely seen. Use it; it will never fail.

Translation –
Music cannot be seen, but only heard.  There is a spirit in all life that music can permeate.
