Tao 47

The infinitely large and infinitely small share the same essence.
Grand patterns reflect in the tiniest detail.
Enormity contained by the infinitesimal.

Therefore, the journey of knowing the universe requires no travel.
One can begin to know without searching.
One can begin to do without trying.
One can begin to work without effort.

This is the way of Tao.
