No-thing seeing itself as No-thing

I just wanted to point out the bleeding obvious.

When I turn my attention back onto the attention itself , that's attending 180 degrees around to where the head/face resides... I don't find a head but a no-thing! In other words, I rotate the no-thing around to find absolutely no-thing!!!!!'

The philosophy of Taoism understands Tao as the One Thing which exists and connects the Many things. Tao, Nature, Reality are One.

The following quotes (attributed to Lao Tzu) help us understand the nature of the Tao;

“If people do not revere the Law of Nature, It will inexorably and adversely affect them
If they accept it with knowledge and reverence, It will accommodate them with balance and harmony.”

There is a thing, formless yet complete.
Before heaven and earth it existed.
Without sound, without substance,
it stands alone and unchanging.
It is all-pervading and unfailing.
One may think of it as the mother of all beneath Heaven.
We do not know its name, but we call it Tao.
Deep and still, it seems to have existed forever.”

“The Great Tao flows everywhere.
It may go left or right.
All things depend on it for life, and it does not turn away from them.
It accomplishes its tasks, but does not claim credit for it.
It clothes and feeds all things, but does not claim to be master over them.
Always without desires, it may be called the Small.
All things come to it and it does not master them;
it may be called The Great.”

“The Tao that can be told of is not the eternal Tao;
the name that can be named is not the eternal name.”

“Hold on to the Tao of old in order to master the things of the present.”

“Being one with Nature, he is in accord with the Tao.
Being in accord with the Tao, he is everlasting.”

“Whether it is big or small, many or few, repay hatred with virtue.”

”Manifest plainness, Embrace simplicity, Reduce selfishness, Have few desires.”

“Be still like a mountain and flow like a great river.” (Lao Tzu)
