Tao of the Day  
Ok, this one is a slight stretch, but bare with me. Zen Buddhism was influenced by Taoism but while Zen Buddhism and Taoism are frequently playmates, they're very different creatures. In my experience though, they both share a love of playfulness and layers of meaning depending on how much you want to think about something. If you practice Zen Buddhism, I'd love your take on this quote, and whether or not it feels koanish to you.

Yogi tea always has some pithy little quote on their tea bags. Usually they're a little too i-love-you-man-no-really-i-love-you for my taste, so I'm not at all sure the double entendre was intended, but here it is nonetheless with my morning tea.

Both sides of this sword reside in the Tao.

Our intuition lies in our innocence.
