Tao Te Ching Meditation - Chapter 56: More On The Great And Mysterious Tao

56.1 Those who know do not say; those who say do not know.
56.2 Close the senses, shut the doors; blunt the sharpness, resolve the complications; harmonize the light, assimilate to the world. This is called the mysterious sameness.
56.3 It cannot be made familiar, yet cannot be estranged; it cannot be profited, yet cannot be harmed; it cannot be valued, yet cannot be demeaned. Therefore it is precious for the world.
