New Thought Tao 11 - explores the importance of the space between things
Tao # 11 / Space Between
"The Space Between the nothing and being
is what makes things work for you and me"
Spokes are united through the hub
yet it is the space between
which makes the wheels
roll for our machines
the potter's wheel spins
and the clay is formed
tis the space within
that which is not
which truly makes the pot
We erect walls and roofs
for our homes
but it is the holes
the windows and doors
which make them work
windows bring in air and light
doors allow us to enter and leave
is mostly space
we move between
from place to place
our being composed
mostly of space as well
without which we could not dwell
We benefit by the being
yet the nothingness is essential
- Why do we need space between things?
- Is there more space or less space in the universe?
- What is a singularity?
- What does the conclusory stanza mean to you?
