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.

Chapter 6

6.1 The valley spirit not dying is called the mysterious female.
6.2 The opening of the mysterious female is called the root of heaven and earth.
6.3 Continuous, on the brink of existence, to put in into practice, don't try to force it.
