“The Tao that can be told is not the eternal Tao.
The name that can be named is not the eternal name.
The nameless is the beginning of heaven and Earth.
The named is the mother of the ten thousand things.
Ever desireless, one can see the mystery.
Ever desiring, one sees the manifestations.
These two spring from the same source but differ in name; this appears as darkness.
Darkness within darkness.
The gate to all mystery.” -Tao Te Kung—- Chapter 1

“Once I spoke a word, and the creation came into being. Once again I will speak one word, and all will be over. In between there is only silence and love.”
Meher Baba, 1960
“There is surely nothing other than the single purpose of the present moment. A man’s whole life is a succession of moment after moment. There will be nothing else to do, and nothing else to pursue. Live being true to the single purpose of the moment.”
-Yamamoto Tsunetomo from Hagakure: The Book of the Samurai
