JHO Podcast | Season 2, Episode 1

In this short episode, we cover various news stories about same-sex marriage acceptance (lack of) in Japan, racial accusations, the term Monkeypox as hate speech, and hitting BLM rioters in self-defense (sources below)… 


Plus, we end off with a reading of the Tao Te Ching – Lao Tzu – chapter 29… 

“Do you think you can take over the universe and improve it? I do not believe it can be done. The universe is sacred. You cannot improve it. If you try to change it, you will ruin it. If you try to hold it, you will lose it. So sometimes things are ahead and sometimes they are behind; Sometimes breathing is hard, sometimes it comes easily; Sometimes there is strength and sometimes weakness; Sometimes one is up and sometimes down. Therefore the sage avoids extremes, excesses, and complacency. (translation by Gia-fu Feng and Jane English)” 

This, to me, is one of the most sublime and incredible pieces of human literature anywhere. I hope it is a blessing to you!
