What Did Lao Tzu Mean? Part 3

What did Lao Tzu mean when he wrote in the Tao Te Ching, “Those who say, do not know. Those who know, do not say”?

In this series entitled What Did Lao Tzu Mean? are entertained some responses. You are welcome to include yours as a comment. This one is by several authors:

“Truth is a pathless land”. J. Krishnamurti
Vijayan Paliath

there are no words there is actually no there there is only…………..

its just on the subject of Reality[or what he called the Tao] not ordinary knowledge which is essentially just information
Kirk Crist

I think he meant that anyone who says they know, do not know. So that rules out Tolle, Foster, Parsons , Buddha, Christ himself etc. In other words he had no idea and just like most non dualists liked to play with words.!
Fun though!
Best wishes

If you read the whole book of Tao Te Ching, the message floats around this concept:
There are no boundaries.
There are no no’s.
There are no yes’s.
Bruce Lee put it rather appropriately – he said:
“Be like water, my friend.”
Seth Chong
