Verse 16

Bid on NFT

Become totally empty 
Quiet the restlessness of the mind 
Only then will you witness everything 
    unfolding from emptiness 
See all things flourish and dance 
    in endless variation 
And once again merge back into perfect emptiness— 
    Their true repose 
    Their true nature 
Emerging, flourishing, dissolving back again 
    This is the eternal process of return 
To know this process brings enlightenment 
To miss this process brings disaster 
Be still 
Stillness reveals the secrets of eternity 
Eternity embraces the all-possible 
The all-possible leads to a vision of oneness 
A vision of oneness brings about universal love 
Universal love supports the great truth of Nature 
The great truth of Nature is Tao 
Whoever knows this truth lives forever 
The body may perish, deeds may be forgotten 
But he who has Tao has all eternity
