Daodejing 34

ImageThe essence 

of The Way of 

the creative universe

is left, 

is right, 

is all around. 

 

It gives all, 

takes nothing. 

 

It accomplishes all, 

claims nothing. 

 

It clothes all, 

feeds all, yet

seeks no 

power. 

 

There it is, 

one of the smallest 

of things. 

 

Because it 

has power over 

everything yet

claims no power,

it is the most

powerful thing.

 

Those free of themselves 

may learn from this: 

 

power comes 

from not 

seeking power.
