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。

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。

Tao Te Ching, Lao Tzu Day 3


Pu Shang hsien
Don’t glorify heroes,
And people will not content.

Don’t treasure rare objects,IMG_4817
And no one will steal.
Don’t display what people desire,
And their hearts will not be disturbed.
Therefore,
The sage rules By emptying hearts and filling bellies, By weakening ambitions and strengthening bones;
Leads people Away from knowing and wanting;
Deters those who know too much From going to far;
Practices non-action And the nature order is not disturbed.
不尚賢。

Recognize beauty and ugliness is born.
Recognize good and evil is born.
Ku Yu Wu Hsiang Sheng
Is and Isn’t produce each other: Hard depends on Easy; Long is tested by Short; High is determined by Low, Sound is harmonized by Voice, After is followed by Before.

IMG_1215Therefore the Sage is devoted to Non-action,
Moves without teaching,
Creates ten thousand things without instruction,
Lives but does not own,
Acts but does not presume,
Accomplishes without taking credit.
When no credit is taken,
Accomplishment endures.

道可道,非常道。910971545687376403
Tao called Tao is not Tao.
Names can name no lasting name.
Nameless: the origin of heaven and earth.

Naming: the mother of ten thousand things.
Empty of desire, perceive mystery.

Filled with desire, perceive manifestation.
These have the same source, but different names. Call them both deep– Deep and again deep:
The gateway to all mystery.
