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
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.
