Without Beginning or End


WITHOUT BEGINNING OR END

Chuang Tzu

The Way is without beginning or end      
All things have their life and death          
Hence, you cannot rely upon them for fulfillment

One moment is empty
The next moment full    
Hence, you cannot depend upon their form         

The years cannot be restrained  
Time cannot be stopped            
Decay
Growth
Fullness
Emptiness        
All end and then begin again

This is the understanding of the Great Meaning
And the principles of The Ten Thousand Strings

So true that we cannot depend on anything. Yet, there is a way to work with this. I suppose "truth itself" is what the Tao Masters are speaking of?

To literally look at the phrase 'truth itself' it personifies Truth or else it wouldnt have a self. An ideal isnt itself or not, it just is. We live our lives in truth and we make it tangable; truth itself.
