Daodejing 32

 

The unchanging way remains
unmanageable. Even though
it is small and simple, no one
dares claim to be its master.

If leaders really mastered it,
all would submit to them—the sky
and earth would suddenly unite,

raining down plenty, and
all people would share,
fairly, without compulsion.

When the way becomes action,
we have a name for that action.

When we have a name for it,
all people see it is correct,
without any effort or guessing.

Our reality is related to the way,
just as rivers are to the sea.
