Tao Te Ching Journey

14th Verse – Tao Te Ching

That which cannot be seen is called invisible.
That which cannot be heard is called inaudible.
That which cannot be held is called intangible.
These three cannot be defined; therefore, they merged as one.

Each of these three is subtle for description.
By intuition you can see it, hear it, and feel it.
Then the unseen, unheard, and untouched are present as one.

Its rising brings no dawn, its setting no darkness;
it goes on and on, unnameable, returning into nothingness.

Approach it and there is no beginning; follow it and there is no end.
You cannot know it, but you can be it, at ease in your own life.

Discovering how things have always been
brings one into harmony with the Way.

~ Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life by Dr. Wayne Dyer

This verse reminds me so much of the Trinity, the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. They are all separate but yet one. Not to mention you can see them but they are there. Same with what cannot be seen, heard, or held…also like what a blind man “sees” or a deaf man “hears” or something you  cannot hold, but all is there, true, real, and still exists. When I read this verse, it reminds me of how thankful I am to have sight and sound.

This verse seems so much more significant then the others just because of the fact that you want harmony back into your life and in order to do that you must regain your connection to the Trinity, nature, Source. It is very important that we do that, also from Psalms 46:10 to “be still and know that I am God.” These are very similar things! We need to quiet our earthly mind, get back to God and meditate on His word. I think the best way to do that is to surround yourself in nature because that is were the Source is from. Nature is as it is, always was and always will be. To be filled with the Spirit again, you have to do this on a daily basis in order to have harmony in your life.

Be still God
