The essential Tao

fotot är lånat

A way can be a guide, but not a fixed path;
names can be given, but not permanent labels.
Nonbeing is called the beginnings of heaven and
being is called the mother of all things.
Always passionless, thereby observe the subtle;
ever intent, thereby observe the apparent.
These two come from the same source but differ in
both are considered mysteries.
The mystery of mysteries
is the gateway of marvels.

från "The Essential Tao" í översättning och tolkning av Thomas Cleary
