There is the eminence that exists prior to the manifestation.
It alone exists by itself prior to the existence of the universe.
Deep in stillness and silence, it is the pure subjectivity free of objectivity.
It permeates without depletion and is the maternity that animates the manifestation.
I do not know its name, if have to, I call it Tao.
If have to, I call it the greatness that defies conceptual comprehension.
That which defies conceptual comprehension is of afar.
Yet the farness is still of the conceptual speculation.
It is, as it is, as of the moment of now.
Therefore, with life in manifestation, there are four greats: Tao, the light, the sentience, and the individual human beigns.
With the four greats in life and manifestation, human is one of them.
Humans follow the sentience. The sentience follows the light. The light follows Tao, Tao follows itself as it is.
