Tao 4

Note: A video version of this translation can be found here.

Tao is not a thing
It is the source of all things.

A finite infinity
of nothing but endless possibility.

Beneath the currents of civilizations —
the rise and fall of empires,
the dialectics of ideologies,
— lies Tao, hidden and steady.
Beneath all this human clutter.

I can think of no thing greater,
for even god² calls it creator.

All 81 chapters of our version of the Tao Te Ching are available online for free here. If you are so inclined, an updated version of our translation is available as an e-book, here.
