He overlaid also the house, the beams, the posts, and the walls thereof, and the doors thereof, with gold; and graved cherubims on the walls.Since humankind values gold, Solomon bears no expense to overlay the cathedral he has built to glorify God.
~ King James version ~
Want to make a sanctuary for Tao? Try building one in your inner being!
~ possible Taoist alternative ~
Tao values gold no more nor less than dust or mold spores. In fact, Tao values nothing. Valuation is a human concept; one used to draw distinctions.
Tao has no interest in glory nor exaltations.
If you feel compelled to build an "altar" to Tao, do it in your own being. Empty yourself of all pretenses and you will find Tao in the void.
