The Tao Te Ching is a classic body of work written by Chinese philosopher, Lao Tzu in the 6th century B.C. The Tao holds words of wisdom & spiritual enlightenment within it's 81 verses. It guides the student & teacher alike with a moral structure known as, The Great Integrity.

Verse 32 Is It Not Time To Unify the Fragments?

Although the Great Integrity is infinite,
and therefore undefined,
it is silent in its Primal Simplicity.

Nothing is its superior.
When humanity embraces the Great Integrity,
all life on earth will be grateful.

All yin and yang will be harmonized
in the sweet daily dew, and peace will reign
on the planet without anyone commanding it.

When the Primal Simplicity atomized
into the 10,000 fragments, with their 10,000 names,
our planet became endangered.

Now - are there not enough fragments?
Is it not time to stop and return to the universal sea
from which all streams emereged?

To return to the Great Integrity
is to obliterate
the list of the 10,000 endangered species.
