Tao te Ching

..............................................................................................

2

When people see some things as beautiful other things become ugly.

When people see some things as good, other things become bad.

Being and non-being create each other.

Difficult and easy support each other.

Long and short define each other.

High and low depend on each other.

Before and after follow each other.

Therefore the Master acts without doing anything and teaches without saying anything.

Things arise and she lets them come; things disappear and she lets them go.

She has, but doesnít possess Acts, but doesnít expect.

When her work is done, she forgets it.

That is why it lasts forever.

The ancient Masters didnít try to educate the people, but kindly taught then not to know.

When they think that they know the answers, people are difficult to guide.

When they know that they donít know, people can find their own way. If you want to learn how to govern, avoid being clever or rich.

The simplest pattern is the clearest.

Content with an ordinary life, you can show all people the way back to their own true nature.
