Daodejing 21

People looking for The Way 
of the creative universe
are willing to keep searching.
Finding The Way is difficult,
using sight and touch–The Way 
cannot be seen or touched,
though it contains all images.
The Way eludes sight and touch,
though all events occur there.
All essences, though they are 
dark and immaterial, live there.
The life force, though dark 
and immaterial, lives there.
The life force does not pass away
and contains everything true.
From today back to the beginning,
The Way has been respected.
How has anyone ever known
essences or the life force?
By searching The Way!
