Master Li Tao Te Ching Verse 4



A new student asked “Master Li, is it true that the Dao is a bottomless well?” Master Li told him, “Yes, it is true. I would not recommend falling into it.” The student thought for a moment and then said, “If I fell in it, would I not be immersed in the Dao and be one with it?” Master Li said, “No, you would drown in it. One can drown in the Dao just as easy as one can drown in the ocean if you don’t know what you are doing.”
