Tao Te Ching Chapter 14-19 Tao's quintessence

Today's Tao

It is called the quintessence of Tao. (Ch.14)

Tao is you.

What are you afraid of?

Of future? Of others? Of your own mind?

Don't be afraid. You are all right.

"Your life itself is Buddha!"

Zen Master Dogen says so.

You are the quintessence of Tao.

You don't have to look for it somewhere else.

Naoto Matsumoto says:

The Chinese Character (Kanji) 紀 [ki] is translated as "quintessence" here. It can be understood as "the hub" in the sense that is discussed at 30 spokes 11-1 and Wheel 11-2.
