An essay on how coherent reading of Daoist gateway character indulges to an understanding of dao see "it" as a transcendental ground is presented. The author believes that while human, in Daoism, is a crucial and integral part of the whole process of dao, humankind should not focus of the process as is usually done in the traditional metaphysical approach. He also argues that humanity, more importantly Daoist sages, should be somewhere in-between tian and everyday humanity.
