    Hotep,

    I'm going to be posting the 81 verses of the Tao Te Ching. Get out of it what you will.

    The tao that can be told
    is not the eternal Tao
    The name that can be named
    is not the eternal Name.

    The unnamable is the eternally real.
    Naming is the origin
    of all particular things.

    Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
    Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.

    Yet mystery and manifestations
    arise from the same source.
    This source is called darkness.

    Darkness within darkness.
    The gateway to all understanding.

    I don't know if Lao-tzu is available for me to get his permission, as he's been dead for centuries. :SuN048: The Tao Te Ching is not under US copyright, so it is free to distribute, right?

    I wouldn't say that, FloatDarkMoon :)

    Perhaps there are others who are interested in reading the 81 verses - Why not add a link to your initial post so members can choose for themselves? You posted something you believe is vaulable, please share it.

    Thank you
    :heart:
