Daodejing 21

Those 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 things.


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!
