The Tao denies nothing
Mitchell's translation of the Tao Te Ching states in the introduction:
"The master has mastered nature not in the sense of conquering it, but by becoming it.
In surrendering to the Tao, in giving up all concepts, judgements, and desires, her mind has grown naturally compassionate.
She finds deep in her own experience, the central truths to the art of living, which are paradoxical only on the surface.
That the more truly solitary we are, the more compassionate we can be.
That the more we let go of what we love, the more present our love becomes.
That the clearer our insight into what is beyond good and evil, the more we can embody the good.
Until finally she is able to say, in all humility, I am the Tao, the truth, and the life. "
That sounds pretty personal to me
If I am the Tao and I am a person than the Tao must be personal
