Thomas Merton – The Way of Chuang Tzu Chapter 1!
In this episode, we start our study of Chuang Tzu. We discuss the first chapter of the book entitled, “The Way of Chuang Tzu” by Thomas Merton. A good discussion of the potential of love in everyone, when we fulfill the commands of our true nature, rather than those of our ego-self.
