Chen Jen on Laozi - Chapter 4

Tao is empty. Would you experience Tao? Be empty. Yet know, too, that in emptiness there is no Tao. This is Tao.

Always, to speak of Tao is to aspire to be Tao-like. This is to experience Tao.

Tao is fathomless. Return to the fathomless up-welling of life within you. This is to unite with Tao.

Tao is one with the dust. Be thou likewise. This is to follow Tao.
