Daodejing 10

ImageBody and mind embrace.

With attention to the breath,

we can become gentle.

 

With attention to thoughts,

we clear away flaws.

 

Loving people and leading

must be done without pride.

 

The sky’s gate opens and shuts

in birth and in death, 

yin and yang changing,

 

and on. And on.

 

Those free of themselves 

see in all directions; very

clearly those are wise. 

 

The Way of the creative universe 

creates and nourishes. Yet it 

does not demand or boast.

 

The Way of the creative universe 

accomplishes everything, yet 

makes no claims at all. 

 

It rules over all 

without controlling

anything.

 

This is the mystery 

of The Way of 

the creative universe.
