Tao 52

If the big bang is the beginning of the universe,

What is is derived from it.

To know the source is to know all it has begotten.

Knowing all things come from something,  return to the source.

Submit to death as but part of the continuation of life.

To see the small as part of the universe,

in all its unique detail,

This is called discernment.

Yield to the force of the source on its terms.

Find oneself in the details of all things,

This is the universal constant.
