The things which from of old have got the One





The things which from of old have got the One (the Tao) are--


Heaven which by it is bright and pure;

Earth rendered thereby firm and sure;

Spirits with powers by it supplied;

Valleys kept full throughout their void

All creatures which through it do live

Princes and kings who from it get

The model which to all they give



All these are the results of the One (Tao)





The Tao, considered as unchanging, has no name The thirst of a thoughtless man grows like a creeper; facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail
