The Pooh Way ~ Lessons from the Tao of Pooh

I was so excited to run across this book that I had loved reading over 30 years ago. I was just getting into my spiritual mo-jo and seeing how ancient principles could be applied to current day dilemmas. Here is a great link for all things Pooh and a nice summary of the book.

Here’s one of my favorite passages from the Tao of Pooh ~

“Just how do you do it, Pooh?”
“Do what"? asked Pooh.
“Become so Effortless.”
“I don’t do much of anything,” he said.
“But all those things of yours get done.”
“They just sort of happen,” he said.

One might think that this laissez-faire approach is not conducive to a productive life. But in the Tao one doesn’t force or interfere with things, but lets them work in their own way, to produce results naturally. Then whatever needs to be done is done.

Could going with the flow really be a key to happiness?

I think it’s worth a try. It takes really understanding the true nature of things whether it’s an individual, a family or an organization. It’s releasing need to put a square peg in a round role. Round pegs are
built for round holes. Square pegs for square holes. We know this. Be sure you know the shape that will work best to solve the problem.

I loved these posters that share some of the Pooh wisdom. I hope you enjoy them.
