That which cannot be seen is called invisible.
That which cannot be heard is called inaudible.
That which cannot be held is called intangible.
These three cannot be defined;
therefore, they are merged as one.
Each of these is subtle for description.
By intuition you can see it,
and feel it.
Then the unseen,
are present as one.
Its rising brings no dawn,
its setting no darkness;
It goes on and on, unnameable,
returning into nothingness.
Approach it and there is no beginning;
Follow it and there is no end.
You cannot know it, but you can be it,
at ease in your own life.
Discovering how things have always been
brings one into harmony with the Way.
– Tao Te Ching, Verse 14 by Lao Tzu –
This verse by Lao Tzu is taken out from Living the Wisdom of The Tao by Dr Wayne Dyer. It really spoke to me and made me think about trust and trusting in something bigger than us. There is a Higher Intelligence to Life that is always working for us yet we are conditioned from a young age to believe differently – unless we see it we cannot believe it right?
What if that which we are seeking was always there all long waiting for us to open the door of awareness to bring forth that which we always have been?
I am allowing the space of inquiry as I take in the energy of this verse and invite you to do the same if it calls to you.
Have a great week.
Love and light,
