The great Tao flows everywhere,
to the left and to the right.
All things depend upon it to exist,
and it does not abandon them.
To its accomplishments it lays no claim.
It loves and nourishes all things,
but does not lord it over them.
|His eyes were as a flame of fire,|
and on his head were many crowns;
and he had a name written,
that no man knew, but he himself.
And he was clothed with a vesture dipped in blood:
and his name is called the Word of God...
And out of his mouth goeth a sharp sword,
that with it he should smite the nations:
and he shall rule them with a rod of iron;
and he treadeth the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.
And he hath on his vesture and on his thigh a name Written:
King of Kings, and Lord of Lords.
A reader of my web site pointed out that an article published by Alan Watts in 1973 is available on the web:
The World's Most Dangerous Book.
Alan has a few pointed comments about Bible worship - that are still very applicable over 25 years later.
