Tao - Poem by Lawrence CH Hiun

The Tao that be can talked about or
Put into words is not the Eternal Tao.
Tao cannot be held, only experienced.
Tao cannot be touched, only felt.

Tao cannot be seen, but only glimpsed with the inner eye.
Tao is an elusive word,
Meaning much more than can be explained.

Tao also called the Law or the Way Or simply All That Is.
Tao then, is the Way, as in direction, manner, source,
Destination, Purpose, and Process.

Those who seek for and follow the Tao are strong of body,
clear of mind and sharp of sight and hearing.
They do not load their mind with anxieties, and
flexible in their adjustment to external conditions.
