'The Way is like an empty vessel
That yet may be drawn from
Without ever needing to be filled.
It is bottomless: the very progenitor of all things in the world...
It is like a deep pool that never dries
I do not know whose child it could be.
It looks as it were prior to God'
Text is from Mysticism: Christian and Buddhist by D.T. Suzuki (Routledge) - a translation of Lao-Tzu's Tao Te Ching.
