TaoTeChing, Lao-Tzu Day 10

Can you balance your life force
And embrace the One without separation?

Jasmin Green Tea smallCan you control your breath gently like a baby?
Can you clarify your dark vision without blemish?
Can you live people and govern the country without knowledge?

Can you open and close the gate of heaven without climbing to earth?
Can you brighten the four deductions without action? Give birth and cultivate.Give birth and do not possess. Act without dependence. Excel but do not rule. This is called dark Te.

载营魄抱一,能无离乎?专气致柔,能如婴儿乎?涤除玄览,能无疵乎?爱民治国,能无为乎?天门开阖,能为雌乎?明白四达,能无知乎?生之、畜之、生而不 有,为而不恃,长而不宰,是谓玄德。

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 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。

Tao Te Ching, Lao-Tzu Day 5

Heaven and Earth are not kind.
The ten thousand things are straw dogs to them.
Sages are not kind:TaoTeChing Day 5 small
People are straw to them.
Yet Heaven and Earth
And all the space between
Are like bellows:
Empty but inexhaustible,
Always producing more.
Long winded speech is exhausting. Better to stay cantered.

天地不仁,以萬物為芻狗; 聖人不仁,以百姓為芻狗。

天地之間,其猶橐籥乎!

虛而不屈、動而愈出, 多言數窮,不如守中。
