Chapter 25

Something mixed completely
Born before All
Silent oh shapeless oh
Standing alone and not changing
Going around everywhere but not endangering
It can act as the mother of All
I know not its name
If it must be given a word say it is the Way
If it must be given a name say it is great
Great is said to be far-reaching
Far-reaching is said to be distant
Distant is said to be coming back
The Way is great
Heaven is great
Earth is great
Men also are great
The centre of the realm has four greats
And men are one of them
Men are ruled by Earth
Earth is ruled by Heaven
Heaven is ruled by the Way
The Way is ruled by its own nature
