Tao Te Ching Chapter 40

By Lao Tzu

Chapter 40

  • Here's a mini wisdom bomb for you.
  • Everything that exists came from nonexistence, or in the words of the TTC, "Being is born of nonbeing" (40.3).
  • So somewhere back in the ancient past all things came out of nothingness, and eventually everything will return to it.
  • But in the Tao, nothing isn't nothing.
  • It's filled with infinite possibilities.
