Tao Teh Ching 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 it is always heard.



The Way does not call,


yet all come to it.



The Way is relaxed,


yet its designs



work and work.



The sky’s net is far-flung


and the holes in it are huge,



Yet nothing
