what it is and what it isn’t
the gift of NOW, the tiny present
connecting causal to effectual
between the then and the eventual
it is where choice meets consequential.
it’s not what you wanted not what you did
the yin plus yang of what it is
it’s both the fizzle and the fizz.
not what it was not what it would be
not what you hear or what your eyes see
it is the nameless name… of the TAO-Chi.
Composed around the 6th century BC by the sage Laozi (Lao Tzu),
the Tao Te Ching is the foundational text of Taoism and a major
influence on Confucianism and Chinese Buddhism.
