Tao Bible - Exodus 3:2

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.
~ King James version ~

Tao is and follows the way of the cosmos.
~ possible Taoist alternative ~
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.

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.
