Different People, Equal Joy
Chuang Tze on the value of diversity
We are born into a human body and we find great joy in it. Yet there are other lives within the transformation of the ten thousand beings that are just as good and equally full of joy.
Chuang Tze from the Tao Te Ching
Taoism recognises the value of human diversity - there is no one joy, there is no one right way of being, there is no one type of person who is the best.
