Living the Mystery – 1. Vers

The Tao that can be told

is not the eternal Tao.

The name that can be named

is not the eternal name.

The Tao is both named and nameless.

As nameless it is the origin of all things;

as named it is the Mother of 10 000 things.

Ever desireless, one can see the mystery;

ever desiring, one sees only the manifestations.

Andt the mystery itself is the doorway

to all understanding.
