Daodejing 1


A way that 

can be walked

is not The Way 

of the creative 



A name that 

can be named 

is not 

the lasting name

of the creative



Without name, The Way 

of the creative universe 

is origin of all that is; 

named, a way creates

all we see.


Reaching, we find edges.


Without reaching, 

we find essence;


All has the same source;

only the names 

and the naming differ.


Not naming and naming are

two ways to mystery; 

the mystery of mystery is

the gate to all mystery.
