Returning is the motion of the Tao.
Yielding is the way of the Tao.
The ten thousand things are born of being.
Being is born of not being.
Tao is always heading
back to where it came from.
Tao advances by not pressing forward.

Things exist because they are.
They are because they once were not.

The first version is from the Fortune files. The second version is the Beatrice Tao.

Charity Has No Label (Jos Stabbert)

A portion (3) of "The Way is Tao, by Jos Stabbert

         All these thoughts
  words arranged on paper,
        come from the Tao
      and return to the Tao.
     Yet they do not touch it.


                                                            has no label,
                                                 compassion has no religion
                                                       wisdom no dogma,
                                                       empathy no rules.

                                                        needs no laws.
                                                 enlightenment no temples,
                                                   Living in total harmony
                                                             with Tao
                                                      is beyond culture,
                                                              with Tao
                                                      beyond philosophy.

                                                   Emptiness and silence
                                                      cannot be defined.
                                                               The Way
                                                           has no name,
                                                                for it is
                                                                  Tao. /
