The mountains quake at him, and the hills melt, and the earth is burned at his presence, yea, the world, and all that dwell therein.Why would mountains, hills and the earth be fearful of that which created them? Sentiments like this make no sense to me whatsoever!
~ King James version ~
The valley spirit never dies;
It is the woman, primal mother.
Her gateway is the root of heaven and Earth.
~ from Verse 6 of the Tao Te Ching ~
