Daodejing 1

A way that
can be walked
is the opposite
of The Way
of the creative

A name that
can be named
is not
the lasting name.

Without name, The Way
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.

Mystery has two ways–
naming and not naming.

Mystery itself is
the gate to knowing.
