Four

Tao is a whirling emptiness,
yet when used it cannot be exhausted.
Out of this mysterious well
flows everything in existence.

Blunting
sharp edges
Untangling knots,
Softening the glare,
It evolves us all and
makes the whole
world one

Something is
there, hidden and deep!
But I do not know whose child it is—
It came even before
God.

Lao Tsze, Brian Browne Walker translation
