From a set of 37 musical reflections for small orchestra inspired by the ancient philosophical text by Lao Tzu: "Tao Te Ching".

This movement is inspired by verse 35:

Hold the great elephant - the great image - and the world moves. Moves without danger, in safety and peace.

Music and sweets make passing guests pause, but the Tao emerges flavourless and bland.

Look - you won't see it.

Listen - you won't hear it.

Use it - you will never use it up.
