Tao is the unknowable fundamental of the universe.
Follow its current,
And it is the source of joy and wonder.
Fight against it,
And it is merely a refuge.
Eloquent words and admirable deeds yield profit,
But those lacking such things, do they not come from Tao as well?
Your greatest gift is to be a conduit for Tao.*
~ Lao Tzu
The last line really resonated today. To be a conduit of the goodness and wholeness of our very nature would be the best gift for all of us to share.
