Tao teh Ching Two

When everyone agrees
On beauty, that is
Ugliness.
When all agree
On virtue,
There is no good.

Seen and unseen
Flow from each other.

The difficult and the easy
Go round and around.

Long and short;
High and low;
Noise and music;
Before and after—

One reveals the other.

This is why the enlightened
Do without doing, teach
Without speaking.

In every action
The enlightened act with
The will of the action.

They do without fuss
But do powerfully.
