#Tao Te Ching 54

What is planted according to The Way

Will not be uprooted;

What is grasped according to The Way

Cannot be snatched or lost.

In The Way, the human chain

Grows longer, in virtue.

 

Cultivation of virtue in the self creates integrity;

Cultivation of virtue in the family creates well-being;

Cultivation of virtue in the community creates kindness;

Cultivation of virtue in the nation creates abundance;

Cultivation of virtue in the world creates human flourishing.

 

Care in The Way creates virtue in self,

Family, community, nation, and world.

 

How do I know this?

Look around you!
