tao like a well

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.

Lao Tzu Tao Te Ching Chapter 4
Translated by S Mitchell


Tao is inexhaustible, but to embrace its abundance, you cannot set a limit to what you know, and confine yourself to what you think you are.  Be open like the eternal void, so that you can fill yourself with infinite possibilities.

Allow yourself to go beyond the confine of your mind and limit of your thoughts.  Beneath the surface level of your consciousness is an ever-flowing spring of inspirations.

Let the mystery unfold.
