Tao 73

Fearlessness gets you killed;
Care keeps you alive;
One is good; one is bad.

Who knows why the cosmos
Does as it does?

The enlightened can only
Keep their eyes open.

The Way does not push,
Yet it pushes through.

The Way does not speak,
Yet is always heard.

The Way does not call,
Yet all come to it.

The Way is relaxed,
Yet its designs

Work.

Heaven’s net is far-flung
And the holes in it huge,

Yet nothing
ever
escapes.
