Tao Te Ching Chapter 15-8 Thick
Thick, as if he were an uncarved block. (Ch.15)
"You are a bit thick. You know that?"
When you talk about Tao in front of people, some of them must say this.
If they say: "Wow, you are a true enlightened man", you are not talking about a true «uncarved block».
This is one of Lao Tzu's favourite expressions to describe the initial state of being.
Be as innocent, as stupid, and as thick as an «uncarved block».
