The Tao Is Tao (16)

                                                      







                                                                 16

                                         The ignorant see the turmoil
                                          flickering before their eyes
                                                 as the only reality.
                                           The person close to Tao
                                  sees the form moving before her as:
                                                empty and fleeting,
                                          a magicians slight of hand
                                               yet timeless and real;
                                                  so many thoughts,
                                                    mere emotions
                                               insubstantial dreams,
                                             yet the substance of life.
                                           inseperable from emptiness.

                                                                      -- Jos Stabbert.
