the tao/dao that can be told

is not the constant Tao/Dao

"The Tao is basically utterly open.

Utter openness has no substance.

It ends in endlessness, begins in beginningless."

The Book of Balance and Harmony, Part Two

Perhaps this is all you need to know.

"How can we understand Taoism?" Thomas Christensen ponders this question in his article "Taoism and the Arts of China."

A more detailed explanation is provided in the introduction to Livia Kohn's book Daoism and Chinese Culture, which has been made available on line by Three Pines Press.
