I’m thinking…

…about Tao


My teachings are very easy to understand and very easy to practice

Yet so few in this world understand and so few are able to practice

My words arise from that ancient source

My actions are those of the universe itself

If people do not know these how can they know me?

Those who follow my ways are rare and so I treasure them

Even if they wear the clothes of a beggar they carry a priceless gem within



…Verse 70 from “Tao Te Ching”

Lao-Tzu, translated by Jonathan Star
ISBN: 978-158542-618-8
