The greatest virtue is to follow Tao and Tao alone.
The Tao is elusive and intangible
Oh, it is intangible and elusive, and yet within is image.
Oh, it is elusive and intangible, and yet within is form.
Oh, it is dim and dark, and yet within is essence.
This essense is very real, and therein lies faith.
From the very beginning until now its name has never been forgotten.
Thus I perceive the creation.
How do I know the ways of creation?
Because of this.

A Master stays focused on Tao.
Nothing else, just Tao.

But you can't pin Tao down--
you can't even see it!
How are you supposed to focus on something like that?

Just remember what Lao Tzu said:
The universe began as a void.
The void fills with images.
Images lead to the creation of objects.
And every object has Tao at its core.

That's the way it's been,
ever since the world began.
How can I be so sure?
I just know.

Okay everyone; I just created a small script, running on my work machine (which never gets shut off, perks of being a sysadmin) which should (*should*!) post every day the next chapter of the Tao (and cycle to the first chapter after 81).
I can't see any obvious flaws with it and it seems to run fine.. However, the first test is the week-end :)
For a while, we'll be back to only the regular Tao, and when I have the courage I'll make a file from the Beatrice Tao, this way whoever asked for it can have that as well.
