“Tao is like the ocean

All rivers run to the ocean without filling it up.

All water comes from it without ever emptying it.”

-Zhun Mang

How can one describe the indescribable? Tao is known as The WayThe Great Whole to which all separate things belong. It can be seen as all that exists, but also the nothingness from which everything comes. I think of it as the Oneness that unites all things. Meditating on the essential reality leads you to that which cannot be described.
