The Book of the Right Way by Laozi – 21


The method yields to the original and originating active principle that appears out of the void.

The way of things is essentially mysterious.

Matter is a mirage.

Matter is obscure.

Vitality is profound.

“Vitality is.” This is axiomatic.

Thus it goes from eternity to now,

The process does not disappear because it continues to be used by everything.

Thus it proliferates itself.

老 子:  「道 德 經」 :  第 二 十 一 章

孔 德 之 容 , 惟 道 是 從 。
道 之 為 物 , 惟 恍 惟 惚 。

惚 兮 恍 兮 , 其 中 有 象 ﹔ 恍 兮 惚 兮 , 其 中 有 物 。

窈 兮 冥 兮 , 其 中 有 精 ﹔ 其 精 甚 真 , 其 中 有 信 。
自 今 及 古 , 其 名 不 去 , 以 閱 眾 甫 。

吾 何 以 知 眾 甫 之 狀 哉 。 以 此 。
