“the tao is like an empty container:
it can never  be emptied and never be filled.
infinitely deep, it is the source of all things.
it dulls the sharp, unties the knotted,
shades the lighted and unites all of creation with dust.

it is hidden but always present.
i don’t know who gave birth to it.
it is older than the concept of god.

heaven and earth are impartial;
they treat all of creation as straw dogs.
the master doesn’t take sides;
she treats everyone like a straw dog.

the space between heaven and earth is like a bellows;
it is empty, yet has not lost its power.
the more it is used, the more it produces;
the more you talk of it, the less you comprehend.

it is better not to speak of things you do not understand”

TAO TE CHING
