The Tao That Can Be Told


The tao that can be told

is not the eternal Tao.

The name that can be named

is not the eternal Name…

-Lao Tzu, Tao Te Ching, translated by Stephen Mitchell


When Moses met God in the form of a burning bush, Moses asked God to tell him God’s name.

God declined to tell him.
