Overture on the Nonduality of duality 7 Taoism
FROM TAOIST TEACHINGS
The tao that can be told
is not the eternal Tao
The name that can be named
is not the eternal Name.
The unnamable is the eternally real.
Naming is the origin
of all particular things.
Free from desire, you realize the mystery.
Caught in desire, you see only the manifestations.
Yet mystery and manifestations
arise from the same source. From Chapter 1 of The Tao Te Ching trans Stephen Mitchell
