Mother Deep, Tao Te Ching πŸ’•
The Spirit in the Void never dies. 
It is called The Mother-Deep. 
The Spirit of the Valley dies not,
It is called Mother-substance of the Deep.

The Door of Mother-substance of the Deep,
Is called the Root of Heaven and Earth.
Continuously, continuously,
It nourishes and preserves.
Use it, 
Thy strength shall not fail. 
Yet, use will never exhaust it. 
~ Translation by Isabella Mears (1922) and by Shrine of Wisdom (1924)
