The Way Conforms To Its Own Nature

Lao Tzu
Lao Tzu

The Way = Oludumare!

I love this quotation of Lao Tzu’s that describes perfectly my own view of the world and Universe I live in and my own ‘concept’ of God.

“Something there is, whose veiled creation was before the Earth or sky began to be; so silent, so aloof and so alone, it changes not, nor fails, but touches all; conceive it as the Mother of the World. I do not know its name; A name for it is “Way”; Pressed for designation, I call it great. Great means outgoing, outgoing, far reaching, far reaching, return. The Way is great, the sky is great, the Earth is great, Man also is great. Within the realm these four are great. Man but stands for one of them. Man conforms to the Earth; The Earth conforms to the Sky; the sky conforms to the Way; the Way conforms to its own nature.”
