The Tao Is Tao (45)



                                               The Tao is absolute and
                                                 depends on nothing,
                                          least of all  priests and disciples
                                          who turn the incomprehensible
                                             into doctrines of influence.

                                             The Tao is not a concept
                                         and cannot be spread by words.
                                       The absolute needs no promotion,
                                        for it is nowhere and everywhere.

                                                    The Taoist sage
                                              has no mission to fulfill
                                                   and prefers to be
                                                  silent and invisible.
