Tao Te Čing

The Tao called Tao is not the everlasting Tao.

The Name that can be Named is not the everlasting Name.

Nameless: the origin of Heaven and Earth.

With Names: the mother of the ten thousand things.

Therefore, consistently without desire, then you perceive inner essence.

With desires, then you perceive outer manifestations.

These both have the same origin, but different names.

Call them both mysterious.

Mysterious and again mysterious.

The gateway to all essence.

Tao Te Ching translation by Dr. Alan A.D. Peatfield and Bruce Frantzis
