What Does Dao Lack?

Scott Bradley

One among several visiting Daoists asked Zhouzi, "Master, will you tell us more of 'nothing to become'?"

Zhouzi replied:

"You are complete in yourself, as you are,
as the Totality is complete in itself, as it is.

Is there some fault in the Universe?
Is there in Dao some lack?
Or is there that which is not Dao?"

At this the Daoist exclaimed, "There's nothing I need become!"
