Tao Te Ching Meditation -- Chapter 21: More On The Mysterious Way

21.1 For the countenance of great virtue,
       only the Way is to be followed.
21.2 As a thing, the Way is abstract and elusive;
       elusive and abstract, there are images in it;
       abstract and elusive, there is something there.
       Recondite, hidden, it has vitality therein:
       that vitality is very real;
       it has truth therein.
21.3 From ancient times to now,
       its name is the undeparting;
       thereby are seen all beauties.
21.4 How do I know all beauties are thus?
       By this.
