Tao Te Ching By Lao Tzu

"The Dao that can be told is not the eternal Dao ⁣

The name that can be named is not the eternal Name. ⁣

The unnamable is the eternally real. Naming is the origin of all particular things. ⁣

Free from desire, you realise the mystery. Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations. ⁣

Yet mystery and manifestations arise from the same source. This source is called darkness. ⁣

Darkness within darkness. The gateway to all understanding."⁣


"When people see some things as beautiful, other things become ugly. When people see some things as good, other things become bad. ⁣

Being and non-being create each other. Difficult and easy support each other. Long and short define each other. High and low depend on each other. Before and after follow each other. ⁣

Therefore the Master acts without doing anything and teaches without saying anything. Things arise and she lets them come; things disappear and she lets them go. She has but doesn't possess
