TaoTeChing, Lao-Tzu Day 9

Hold and fill it–
Not as good as stopping in time.
Measure and pound it– It will not long survive.

DSC01228smallWhen gold and jade fill the hall,
They cannot be guarded.

Riches and pride
Bequeath error.
Withdrawing when work is done: Heaven’s Tao.
持而盈之,不如其已;
揣而銳之,不可長保。
金玉滿堂,莫之能守;
富貴而驕,自遺其咎。
功遂身退,天之道也。

TaoTeChing, LaoTzu Day 8

IMG_1081smallBest to be like water,
Which benefits the ten thousand thins
And does not contend.
It pools where humans disdain to dwell,
Close to the Tao. Live in a good place. Keep your mind deep. Treat others we. Stand by your word. Make fair rules. Do the right things. Work when it’s time. Only do not contend,
And you will not go wrong.
水善利万物而不争,处众人之所恶,故几于道。居,善地;
心,善渊;与,善仁;言,善信;政,善治;事,善能;动,
善时。夫唯不争,故无尤。

TaoTeChing, LaoTzu Day 7

Heaven is long,
Earth is enduring.
Long and enduring
Because they do not exist for themselves.
Therefore the Sage Steps back, but in always in front, Stays outside, but is always within.
No self-interest?

天長地久。
天地之所以能長且久者,以其不自生,故能長生。

是以聖人後其身而身先,外其身而身存。
非以其無私邪?故能成其私

TaoTeChing, LaoTzu Day 6

The valley spirit never dies.Tibetan tea
It is called the Mysterious Female.
The entrance to the Mysterious Female
is called the root of Heaven and Earth,
Endless flow
Of inexhaustible energy.
谷神不死是谓玄牝。

玄牝之门是谓天地根。

绵绵若存,用之不勤。

TaoTeChing, Lao-Tzu Day 4

Tao is empty– Its use never exhausted.
Bottomless– The origin of all things.
White Poeny (300*300)
It blunts sharp edges, Untied knots, Soften glare, Becomes one with the dusty world.
Deeply subsistent–
I don’t know whose child it is.
It’s older than the ancestor.

道冲,而用之或不盈。

渊兮,似万物之宗。

挫其锐,解其纷,和其光,同其尘。湛兮,似或存。

吾不知谁之子,象帝之先。
