684 | Everything changes, Everything Remains | Germain Droogenbroodt

Everything Changes,
Everything Remains

       The nameless is the origin
of heaven and earth

So much has happened,
but nothing has changed

only apparently
everything seems different from before,
and there is hardly anything or nothing
any more recognizable,

although the Road, the winding path
that leads to enlightenment, is unchanged,
and continues to exist, but for more
than only the eye.
