Pulp Taoism

This is awesome.

A Tarantinoesque update of the Tao Te Ching.
If you can talk about it,
it ain't Tao.
If it has a name,
it's just another thing.

Tao doesn't have a name.
Names are for ordinary things.

Stop wanting stuff;
it keeps you from seeing what's real.
When you want stuff,
all you see are things.

Those two sentences
mean the same thing.
Figure them out,
and you've got it made.
I can hear Samuel L Jackson reading that as clear as day.
