Chapter 6

The spiritual reality of the world never ceases to exist.
We call it the mystery of passivity.
The entry to the mystery of passivity is the origin of the universe.
Unceasing, it always remains.
Drawn upon, it is never exhausted.  --Chang Chung-yuan, 1975


The valley spirit never dies;
It is the woman, primal mother.
Her gateway is the root of heaven and Earth.
It is like a veil barely seen.
Use it; it will never fail.
Tao is an eternal mystery,
and everything starts with Tao.

Everybody has Tao in them.
They just have to use it.

The first version is from the Fortune files. The second version is the Beatrice Tao.
