Tao Te Ching #27, Secret

Do you want to know a secret?

Look down at your feet-

what does it feel like to be standing

on top of the Earth?


The answer, full of

sounds and wonderings,

overflowing in metaphors

and wholly inadequate-

nonetheless,

is the secret.

Within that answer is

the answer

to everything else.

 

Now, you may or may not

believe that to be true.

But it is, and we can demonstrate

its veracity right now,

if you are willing.

 

Are you?

 

Good, look down at your feet.

Look, really look. And see.

What does it feel like to be standing

on top of the Earth?
