The Tao Is Tao (177)



                                                        Even in slumber
                                                  I searched for her face,
                                                 like someone obsessed,
                                               and when it became clear
                                                 I would never succeed,
                                               and I stopped searching,
                                                        she appeared
                                             not in glory but without trace,
                                            and I saw my self in her face.

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.
