And the angel of the LORD appeared unto him in a flame of fire out of the midst of a bush: and he looked, and, behold, the bush burned with fire, and the bush was not consumed.According to this verse in the Book of Exodus, God appears to Moses as a flaming bush. Defying the laws of nature, the bush burns, but the plant itself is not consumed.
~ King James version ~
Tao is and follows the way of the cosmos.
~ possible Taoist alternative ~
Tao performs no tricks. Though we humans do not understand all the processes that govern the cosmos, Tao is and follows the internal nature of all that is.
