Tao Te Ching Chapter 35

35th Chapter
Whoever follows the Tao, people will come to follow him.
They flock to him and receive no harm.
(Because he treasures everyone and assists everyone according to their own need)
In him, people find peace, security, and happiness.

Good music and good food attract people and cause people to stop and enjoy it.
But when mentioning Tao, most people feel no attraction, like it is plain and tasteless. (because it cannot be perceived with outer senses)
Tao can’t be seen with physical eyes.
Tao can’t be heard with physical ears.
But Tao’s motion and the effects caused by its movement are endless.

Implications from the Holy Books

Know thou of a truth: He that biddeth men be just and himself committeth iniquity is not of Me, even though he bear My name. —Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, Arabic 28

Ye shall be hindered from loving Me and souls shall be perturbed as they make mention of Me. For minds cannot grasp Me nor hearts contain Me. —Bahá’u’lláh, The Hidden Words, Arabic 66
