To the Chinese what is highest, the origin of things, is nothingness, emptiness, the altogether undetermined, the abstract universal, and this is also called Tao.

Before Confucius, the term "Tao" usually meant a road, or a way of action.

Confucius used it as a philosophical concept standing for the right way of action - moral, social, and political.

The Taoist used the term "Tao" to stand for the totality of all things, equivalent to what some philosophers* have called "The Absolute."

The "Tao" was the basic stuff out of which all things were made. It was simple, formless, desireless, without striving, supremely content.

In Tao Te Ching, the gospel of Taoism, Lao Tzu pointed out to us the value of gentleness.
