    Amoebas multiply without question...........

    .if they were to ask would it be.....

    'Am I the outer or the inner? What happens when I am three, but see I'm already four, oh my gosh and more, and yet I know myself as me.'

    :D
    The Tao that can be trodden is not the enduring and
    unchanging Tao. The name that can be named is not the enduring and
    unchanging name.


    (Conceived of as) having no name, it is the Originator of heaven
    and earth; (conceived of as) having a name, it is the Mother of all
    things.

    Always without desire we must be found,
    If its deep mystery we would sound;
    But if desire always within us be,
    Its outer fringe is all that we shall see.

    Under these two aspects, it is really the same; but as development
    takes place, it receives the different names. Together we call them
    the Mystery. Where the Mystery is the deepest is the gate of all that
    is subtle and wonderful.

    All is the balance
    between the One and the Two
    The inner and the outer
    as one view..........harmony.
    Causative through One
    See now Two.

    Hmm, what is wrong with picture?

    (Keeping in mind the Tao Te Ching chapter 1 posted above, the two original quotes, as well as this one?)

    "Therefore it is said, 'In representing the Dao of Heaven, one uses the terms Yin and Yang, and in representing the Dao of Earth, one uses the terms Soft and Hard, while in representing the Dao of Man, one uses the terms Love and Righteousness.'"
    --Zhou Dunyi

    When you come to dwell in the light, what will you do? On the day when you were one you became two. But when you become two, what will you do?"
    Gospel of Thomas, verse 11

    THE MAYAVADIS SAY EVERYTHING IS ONE BUT WE DISAGREE THEREFORE THERE IS TWO."
    A C Bhaktivedanta Prabhupada

    So, What's wrong with this picture? ;)

    Is the point of the tao to put away personal desire, bringing inner peace through a sort of death of either the Tiger or the Dragon? In the picture the Tiger and Dragon desire each other, which means they are both wide awake, changing places and characteristics. As long as both are alive and awake, desire continues, right? I can't wait to hear the answer.

    Also, the tiger's left hind paw resembles a cowboy boot.
