Changing Form


Tao gives rise to all forms, yet has no form of its own. Tao in constant flux like river rushing down from mountain. Impossible to give exact description because components constantly changing. Most talented artist cannot capture on canvas, most expert photographer cannot capture on film.

Common downfall of human is to want to capture things and put them on shelf. Tao cannot be captured. It is most elusive fugitive, not from justice but from human desire to control. Why the need to control? Power, ego, fear?

Only constant is change. Change is what keeps pond from stagnating, where seasons come, go, and come again. Give up notion of fighting change and you give peace a chance at setting up humble shop in mind.
