Quote – The Eternal Tao

1359940929-620567490_n

“Tao can be talked about, but not the Eternal Tao.
Names can be named, but not the Eternal Name.
As the origin of heaven-and-earth, it is nameless;
As “the Mother” of all things, it is nameable.
So, as ever hidden, we should look at its outer aspects.
These two flow from the same source,
though differently named;
And both are called mysteries.
The Mystery of mysteries is the Door of all essence.”

 – John C. H. Wu’s translation of Tao The Ching
