Tao would be better off if it didn't have a name.

Big
Or, let us force ourselves to name it Big. (Ch.25)

Instead of Tao, let's call it Big!


You can call it whatever you like.


In fact, that's what they have been doing all through the human

history.


Some call it Buddha.


Some call it Zen.


Some just call it Higher Being.


Some call it Love.


Of course, you can call it Tao.
