I do not know if I am correct - but my understanding has been the Tao or Dao
is the Primordial Vibration that runs through all existence.
So many words for the same thing.

Greetings..

My understanding.. it is the 'way' things are.. "Tao", literally translated means 'way or path'.. if we study the natural rhythms and cycles of Life, the 'way' Life unfolds, we can align with that 'way' in harmony with it.. and, if we sense a beneficial change, we can gently create space for that change such that harmony is preserved.. and, in nature, harmony sometimes has a 'harsh' appearance..

Be well..

Dao can't be known in a conceptual way which means you can't say anything about it, nor could you even point at 'it'. It's prior to the process that goes by the name 'mind'.

But the Dao/Tao can be experienced ----no concepts..

Excellent to bring up that it was before mind.

Also, before pens and lips - thus is unspeakable in the human language.

Greetings..

Tao is that which allows all things to 'be'.. it is the subtle understanding of 'allowing', that is confusing to most students of Tao..

Be well..
