Daodejing 73

Fearlessness gets you killed;

care keeps you alive;

one is good; one is bad.

 

Who knows why 

the cosmos does

as it does?

 

Those free of themselves

keep their eyes open.

 

The way of the creative universe 

does not push, yet it pushes through.

 

The way of the creative universe 

does not speak,

yet it is always heard.

 

The way of the creative universe 

does not call,

yet all come to it

eventually.

 

The way of the creative universe 

is relaxed, yet its designs

 

work and work.

 

The sky’s net is far-flung

and the holes in it are huge,

 

yet nothing

ever

escapes.
