Quote :
40. Return is the motion of the Way...

Return is the motion of the Way.
Softening is its function.
All things in the cosmos arise from being.
Being arises from non-being.

What do you think this means?

What if you replaced the words "the Way" with "the divine" or "God" or "life/death"? Would that help?

Here's another hint. Think of Autumn...

I view it as a commentary on the cycle of life, death, and rebirth that exists everywhere in nature and perhaps outside it as well.
