Background

A description of the experience

Tao Teh Ching – Lao Tzu

Tao can be talked about, but not the Eternal Tao
Names can be named, but not the Eternal name
As the origin of heaven and earth, it is nameless
As the Mother of all things, it is nameable
So, as ever hidden, we should look at its inner essence
As always manifest, we should look at its outer aspects
These two flow from the same source, though differently named

And both are called mysteries

The mystery of mysteries is the Door of all essence

The source of the experience

Tzu, Lao
