Tao Te – 34

Tao a great antecedent
flows everywhere left around right
ten thousand things depend upon it
nothing is held in reserve
its purpose already fulfilled
silence its only presence

ten thousand things are nourished
without being directed
without a goal Tao is less than nothing

ten thousand things return to Tao
without a command to do so
such is great greatness

Tao’s significance does not show
which is of great significance
