11: Tao Te Ching

been reading this of late and the last few were not interesting, so chapter 11 was more interesting. lol that just now reminds me of chapter 2. I also like the name of this book, nearly titled the post "Dao Teaching"

moving on

30 spokes has a wheel, all surrounding one hub
there is still nothing in the middle, but now its useful.
Punch a lump of clay with your fist,
the imprint left behind makes a ugly but useful bowl.
Erect a tent with doors and windows
the origional empty space can now shelter you from the rain.
So the things we make are only conditions
all we are using is the empty space that was always there.
