And he said, Draw not nigh hither: put off thy shoes from off thy feet, for the place whereon thou standest is holy ground.As we move throughout the Bible, we find a deity who constantly distinguishes between places, beings, actions and thoughts. In this instance, God deems a particular piece of real estate as "holy".
~ King James version ~
Tao makes no distinctions.
~ possible Taoist alternative ~
Tao makes no distinctions. Perceived differences are an invention of the human mind. From this perspective, if all things are of Tao, then all things are divine. If one patch of ground is holy, then all patches are holy.
