The spirit that never dies

is called the mysterious feminine.

Although she because the whole universe,

her immaculate purity is never lost.

Although she assumes countless forms,

her true identity remains intact.

The gateway to the mysterious female

is called the root of creation.

Listen to her voice,

hear it echo through creation.

Without fail, she reveals her presence.

Without fail, she brings us to our own perfection.

Although it is invisible, it endures;

it will never end.


The first six lines of verse six talk of the Tao being the mysterious female. She is everywhere and everything, she takes on several different identities yet stays the same. She is the entire universe and her spirit is pure. I take comfort in the Tao having feminine characteristics.

Lao-tzu talks about the gateway to the mysterious female is the root of all creation. I ponder on those lines and try to imagine this gateway. It became clear to me one day when I was hanging out with my friend Dan. He was describing his belief system to me. He spoke of this place which was the center of everything, and all life flowed through this. He said that when you pass your soul is brought to this sphere type place, and within it is bliss. He describes how the souls spirit guides will help them decide on what kind of life they want to live, and what trials and lessons they need to learn. Once this has been decided the soul is shot out of this blissful sphere and sent to their next life. Dan I hope I described it correctly.

I belive this place my friend described is the root of all creation and the gateway to the mysterious female. I thank him for helping me better understand this verse. Perhaps the Tao was speaking through him that night.

I interoperate the final six lines as listening to that inner voice which guides us through life. Lao-tzu urges us to listen to her because she will bring us to perfection. As I stated in past posts the Tao provides you with everything you need right now. If you take the time to listen, the Tao will deliver you to your own perfection. Dr. Wayne W. Dyer says it perfectly in his book “Change Your Thoughts Change Your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao”

“If you choose to be aware of the inherent creativity that resonates deep within you, where the invisible Tao sings the loudest, you’ll assist the birthing of new ideas, new accomplishments, new projects, and new ways of understanding your life.”

At some point today take the time to go to a quite place and meditate. Clear your mind of the daily stress and confusion which keeps us from finding our way. Open your mind, body, and spirit; listen for the Divine Mothers voice and allow her to guide you.
