With all this talking, what has been said? 
The subtle truth can he pointed at 
with words, but it can't be 
contained by them. 

Take time to listen to what is said 
without words, to obey the law too 
subtle to be written, to worship the 
unnameable and to embrace 
the unformed. 
Love your life. 
Trust the Tao. 
Make love with the invisible subtle origin 
of the universe, and you will give 
yourself everything you need. 

You won't have to hide away forever 
in spiritual retreats. 
You can be a gentle, contemplative hermit 
right here in the middle of everything, 
utterly unaffected, thoroughly 
sustained and rewarded by 
your integral practices. 

Encouraging others, giving freely to all, 
awakening and purifying the world 
with each movement and action, 
you'll ascend to the divine 
realm in broad daylight. 

The breath of the Tao speaks, and 
those who are in harmony 
with it hear quite clearly.
