The Tao..14th verse

                       That which cannot be seen is called invisible.

                That which cannot be heard is called inaudible.

               That which cannot be held is called intangible.

                        These three cannot be defined;

                     therefore, they are merged as one.


              Each of these three is subtle for description.

                       By intuition you can see it,

                                   hear it,

                              and feel it.

                          Then the unseen,


                          and untouched

                        are present as one.


                   Its rising brings no dawn,

                      it's setting no darkness;

                 it goes on and on, unnameable,

                     returning into nothingness.


                Approach it and there is no beginning;

                    follow it and there is no end.

              You cannot know it, but you can be it,

                   at ease in your own life.


         Discovering how things have always been

         brings one into harmony with the Way.


"Try to imagine the idea of forever: that which has never changed, that which has no beginning or end.  It cannot be seen, heard, or touched...but you know it is and always has been.  Think of that which even now, in this very moment as you read these words, is the very understanding that's within you-that essence that permeates you and everything else, yet always eludes your grasp."-from Change Your Thoughts, Change Your Life, by Dr Wayne Dyer

to me this talks of the God essence within each of us, within every thing....and more
