The Tao is Subtle, But Inexhaustible

The Tao is Subtle, but Inexhaustible
Holding the alchemical image inside,
The sage sees the world as peaceful and calm.

Loud music and bright lights
make passing travelers curious,
But, the Tao is so subtle that it is flavorless.

When you look for it, it can’t be seen.
When you listen for it, it can’t be heard.
When you use it, it can’t be exhausted.
