S1E5 - How many Taoists does it take to change a light bulb?

Taoism and changing oneself

Cup of Tao Season 1 Ep 5 How many Taoists does it take to change a light bulb?

Hosted by Chris L McClish -

In this episode: I talk about change, how difficult it is. I open with the Taoist parable of the Out of Control Horse and describe how it is often neccessary for us to not only value spontaneous action, but yet also to take over the reins when needed. In the question of today, I answer a question about procrastination, and fit the answer in to our discussion about change.
