Daodejing 7

Earth and sky have existed

a long time because they 

do not exist for themselves.

 

This is why those free 

of themselves put themselves 

last, yet find themselves first—

 

those free of themselves 

forget themselves,

yet find all is well. 

 

Selflessness leads to

understanding the self.
