“The Tao is like a well: used but never used up.
“It is like the eternal void: filled with infinite possibilities.
“It is hidden but always present.
“I don’t know who gave birth to it.
It is older than God.”
From the TAO TE CHING translated by Stephen Mitchell. Published by HarperCollins, available as an ebook from Google Play Books for CA$11.99.
This magnificent English translation of Lao Tsu’s famous work says it all. I began to shake uncontrollably as I read it, absorbed into Reality again, Reality’s overwhelming presence was indescribable but undeniable.
This book is a thorough account of what the mystic experience of absolute Reality, (MER) is all about. Its absolute truth took me over again, body, mind and soul, just as my experiences did years ago.
Although the TAO TE CHING is addressing Lao Tse’s experiences to mankind, as mine did not for some reason, I can attest it is powerfully true in all its ineffable glory. It reaffirms everything I have been given.
The TAO TE CHING is what the spiritual experience is all about.
I am humbled again beyond words. We are not body, we are not mind, we are TAO, Reality.
ALL IS WELL.
Powerfully simple and all encompassing.
Wholly agree. Spirituality in a nutshell. Beautiful.
