The Way to Life - A Tao Te Ching


only through stillness can the mysteries of nature be perceived
by deep concentration and tranquil observation

out of stillness
the endless thread of the universe is spun

only through stillness can you travel to the gateway of creation
only from stillness can energy emerge
all motion comes from the motionless
the ancients spoke of the Spirit of the Valley
the Mother Goddess
who provides for all ceaselessly
yet never changes
