Tao Te Jing Chapter 1



The talkable law is not eternal law.
The namable name is not eternal name.

The unnamable is the origin of the Heaven and Earth;
The namable is the mother of all things

Therefore without holding desires you perceive the essence,
withholding desires you view the appearances

These two came from the same origin but with different names,
both are called mysteries, mystery of mysteries,
it is the door to all mysteries.
