They shall go with their flocks and with their herds to seek the LORD; but they shall not find him; he hath withdrawn himself from them.God, being upset with the people of Israel for turning away from him, repays the favor by turning away from them.
~ King James version ~
Heaven's net casts wide.
Though its meshes are course, nothing slips through.
~ from Verse 73 of the Tao Te Ching ~
If Tao is the source of all, how could Tao turn away from anything? If Tao has no desires or expectations, there is no motivation to return a tit for a tat.
