Tao Te Ching: Sixth Chapter

Sixth Chapter:
Tao Te Ching

The spirit that never dies
Is subtle and profound–
The source of all things, mysterious feminine — the Divine Mother.

The gateway of the Divine Mother
is the root of creation.

It is always present and unending.
Stay linked to its perfection.
Use it and you will never wear it out.

As I understand it:

Subtle and profound Feminine creates continuously. This mysterious force of abilities, talents and intelligence is inexhaustible. When we live creatively we become aware of the feminine force. If we yoke to its source with awareness, we are able to radiate outward what we feel deeply within.
When we connect to the Divine Feminine, our passions become artworks, accomplishments, ideas and innovative ways of understanding and expressing our universe.

{Lao’s favorite symbol of Tao was the feminine (also infant, valley and water). Feminine stood for humility, lowliness, all-inclusiveness and vastness – all characteristics of Tao.}
