The Tao is Tao (50)

#50






                                                              50

                                           Even when you understand
                                           every detail of the universe
                                                and have uncovered
                                                 the mystery of life,
                                          you will be entirely ignorant
                                      if you do not reside in emptiness,
                                      from which all compassion flows.

                                     Even when you have no education
                                     and cannot even write your name,
                                       you will be a true Taoist sage
                                         if you reside in emptiness,
                                      from which all compassion flows.
