Enlightened Quotes: Lao-Tzu on God

“Something there is, whose veiled creation was
“Before the earth or sky began to be;
“So silent, so aloof and so alone,
“It changes not, nor fails, but touches all:
“Conceive it as the mother of the world.

“I do not know its name;
“A name for it is ‘Way’;
“Pressed for designation,
“I call it Great.
“Great means outgoing,
“Out-going, far-reaching,
“Far-reaching, return.” – Lao-Tzu
