Functionality!

Land1

Tao Te Ching 11

Thirty spokes join in one hub
In its emptiness, there is the function of a vehicle
Mix clay to create a container
In its emptiness, there is the function of a container
Cut open doors and windows to create a room
In its emptiness, there is the function of a room

Therefore, that which exists is used to create benefit
That which is empty is used to create functionality

    1. Yes emptiness creates functionality and functionality exists in emptiness but emptiness can’t create functionality. As water can’t create fire though fire can create water. The elements which exist in hierarchy can’t create predecessor and emptiness comes before all 🙂

    1. Hello Dawn,

      Nice to meet you! Thanks for the kind words. Truth be told that is a verse from classic book Tao Te Ching and available online. If you want to link to my blog it will be an honor though I didn’t write that verse myself 🙂

      Love and light ❤
