Salisbury Cathedral – Chapter 11

We visit the Salisbury Cathedral, where the Magna Carta is stored.


We walk toward the Salisbury Cathedral. Soon we will see the tallest spire in the U.K. and the best preserved original of the Magna Carta which is housed inside.

I read Chapter 11 of the Tao te Ching, translated by Steven Mitchell.

“We join spokes together in a wheel,
but it is the center hole
that makes the wagon move.”

We visit the Salisbury Cathedral.

Inside, we look at the oldest working clock in the world. It chimes on the hour but does does not have hands that specify the hour or minutes.

I look for a place to pray.

“We shape clay into a pot,
but it is the emptiness inside
that holds whatever we want.”

“We hammer wood for a house,
but it is the inner space
that makes it livable.”

“We work with being,
but non-being is what we use.”

Magna Carta and info about it.

We leave and look back at the cathedral.
