Knowledge Asked Yellow Emperor

K nowledge asked [the Yellow Emperor] and said: "I would like to put some questions to you. By what thinking, by what reflection can I know the Tao? By what setting, by what activities can I be at peace with the Tao? By what procedures, by what way can I attain the Tao?"

"Only with no thinking nor reflection," said the Yellow Emperor, "can you begin to know the Tao. Only with no setting nor activities can you begin to be at peace with the Tao. Only with no procedures nor way can you begin to attain the Tao."
