Tao 5

The cosmos is neither
“good” nor “evil”
by human standards.

The cosmos treats all
like a straw dog.

Earthly rulers too
treat others like
so many straw dogs.

The space between
heaven and earth
is empty like a bellows,

moving and moving
and out comes more.
Take care with what

is within yourself;
the outside will not cease
moving and moving.
