Tao Te Ching: Chapter : 21 : Accept

Harmony is only in following the Way.

The Way is without form or quality,
But expresses all forms and qualities;
The Way is hidden and implicate,
But expresses all of nature;
The Way is unchanging,
But expresses all motion.

Beneath sensation and memory
The Way is the source of all the world.

fragrance of silence

The disciples were absorbed in a discussion of Lao-tzu’s dictum:

“Those who know, do not say;
Those who say, do not know.”

When the master entered,
they asked him what the words meant ?Said the master, “Which of you knows the fragrance of a rose?”All of them indicated that they knew.

Then he said, “Put it into words.”

All of them were …… silent.

love all.
