Pointing the Way

How do you bring people into harmony with the Tao?
You can only point at the invisible.
It is like using sign language in the dark.
The mystery is that it works.

  Text of the Month 
May, 2004

Do you understand this?

The silence of Tao
is filled

with power.

Not even

the roar of cannon

can silence

the silence

of Tao.
