Tao Te – 25

something mysterious
present before heavens and earth
as silent as void
alone     static
present     flow
perhaps the mother of ten thousand things
with no known name
call it what you will
lacking anything else I settle on Great Tao

great is its motion
it has gone far
far enough to return

four affirmations
Tao has greatness
heavens have greatness
earth has greatness
humans have greatness

four powers of the universe
and the human is one

a human sees the earth
earth sees the heavens
the heavens see Tao
Tao sees nature
