Tao Te Ching Chapter 4-2 Origin

Today's Tao

Profound, it looks like the origin of everything. (Ch.4)

Tao is the origin of everything, it seems.

But why "it seems"? Was Lao Tzu not sure of it?

Yes, he was.

Tao is the origin of everything, and everything is the origin of Tao. The one is the other's origin and vice versa.

He seemed to avoid giving the impression that it was one way from Tao to everything.

Evidently, the Yin and Yang circle indicates this cycle of creation.

-In Chapter 4 / Tao's function, between "Profound, it looks like the origin of everything." (Origin 4-2) and "Filled, it looks as if it existed." (Filled emptiness 4-3), you can find "Dull the sharpness. Untangle the entanglements. Soften the light. Be like dust". The sentences seem to have been inserted by accident, so they are discussed in Chapter 56 / How to be one with Tao, which is more appropriate.

Lao Tzu answers your question!
