Ax/Chick: You might like this.

Look, and it can't be seen.
Listen, and it can't be heard.
Reach, and it can't be grasped.

Above, it isn't bright.
Below, it isn't dark.
Seamless, unnamable,
it returns to the realm of nothing.
Form that includes all forms,
image without an image,
subtle, beyond all conception.

Approach it and there is no beginning;
follow it and there is no end.
You can't know it, but you can be it,
at ease in your own life.
Just realize where you come from;
this is the essence of wisdom.

From a translation of the words of Lao-tzu

I'm not sure what it is, but I like the feel of it.

Here is another one Quite riddle-like

We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.

We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.

We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it liveable.

We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.


Something to ponder Lao-tzu was the founder of Taoism, his writings are very similiar to those of Confuscious and some say one was a student of the other.
Translated from Chinese circa 500 B.C.

I love it too, glad i found the book.

The second one reminds me of a similisr concept in music and in art.

In music we soon realize that the silence between the notes or sounds is as important to the compisition as the sound is.

In art or photography we realize that the empty space is as important as the subject.

One compliments the other.

You need to get reading Chickie, you wont regret it.
