Tao Te – 14

look anywhere – you will not see a form beyond form
listen any time – you will not hear beyond vibration
reach as you will – you will not grasp the intangible
these three cannot be defined or achieved
this is their commonality

above is not brighter
below is not darker
a thread between is slipperier than words
journies return to nothingness
forms fade to formlessness
images become mirages
in silence rests the unimaginable

stand and search – there is no beginning
quest and follow – there is no end
sit with ancient ta*
move with the present

an ancient beginning embraces today
