Tao Te Ching Chapter 35-5 Tasteless

Today's Tao

Expressed "Tao" is plain and has no taste. (Ch.35)

We try hard to explain Tao, but words are not good enough.

I just wonder why.

Probably Tao and its function are too simple.

And people might say:

"C'mon! It cannot be that simple."

They may prefer some complicated jargons to the simple way to express Tao.

They find it tasteless.

Nevertheless, it has the taste called «no taste».

It is not exactly the same as «tasteless».
