Daodejing 5

The universe is neither 

“good” nor “evil” outside

of human standards.

 

The universe treats all things

like so many straw dogs.

 

Earthly rulers treat people

like so many straw dogs.

 

The space between

sky and earth is empty, 

like a bellows, moving

 

and moving, and

out comes more.

 

Take care of what

is within yourself;

 

the outside will 

never stop

moving and moving.
