Chapter 35 – She who is centered in the Tao can go where she wishes, without danger

She who is centered in the Tao
can go where she wishes, without danger.
She perceives the universal harmony,
even amid great pain,
because she has found peace in her heart.

Music or the smell of good cooking
may make people stop and enjoy.
But words that point to the Tao
seem monotonous and without flavor.
When you look for it, there is nothing to see.
When you listen for it, there is nothing to hear.
When you use it, it is inexhaustible.

    Its such as you read my thoughts! You apeapr to grasp so much approximately this, such as you wrote the e-book in it or something. I feel that you could do with some p.c. to pressure the message house a little bit, but instead of that, this is wonderful blog. A great read. I will definitely be back.
