monks walking across a bridge at Beng Milea Temple

The woman who was waiting for crossing the river, in the mind of the older monk, was just a human being and someone who needed help.
When the monk put her down on the riverbank, he put her down completely.

Lao Tzu talks about “having” and “not having.” Without “having” and “not having,” how can we talk about Tao? Where is the Tao? Where did the Tao go? All things are not equal to the Tao, but the Tao is in them. Therefore, Confucius said, “the Tao cannot be separated for a moment. It is not the Tao if it can be separated.”
老子談“有無”,談萬事萬物,沒有了“有無”,沒有了萬事萬物,如何談道?道在哪裡呢?道到哪裡去了呢?萬事萬物不完全等同於道,道卻就在其中。所以,孔子說,“道不可須臾離,可離非道也。”
