Facts are to truth as words are to music.

There is how things are (yin),

and how things also are (yang),

and that is how things are (Tao).

Yin plus yang equals Tao.

We live on the boundary between yin and yang,

embracing contraries,

integrating opposites,

reconciling contradictions,

serving/producing Tao.

When we do not serve/produce Tao,

there is the way things are,

and there is the way we wish things were,

the way we want things to be.

When we serve the way we want things to be,

we produce a world we cannot live in,

and wonder, “Why?”
