Following behind it, you cannot see its back;
Approaching it from the front, you cannot see its head.
Hold to the Way of today to manage the actualities of today,
thereby understanding the primeval beginning.
This is called “the thread of the Way.”
– Tao Te Ching 14
Everything that is is now. The past is a memory, the future a guess, but the present holds all. Truth and morality lie within its grasp. Do not allow shadows and dreams to distract from what lies before you. Only be seeing the present can the way be known, the path found. Everything else is pretense.
