Tao Te – 16

everything is empty and to be emptied
mind and heart become still
ten thousand things rise and fall
their return simply watched
again they rise and return to their source
a still source is nature’s way
nature’s profligacy is unchanging
entering such constancy begins wisdom
denying ignoring the way of nature begins disaster
trusting such constancy opens mind
an open mind connects to an open heart
open heart expands gracious acts
from heavens to earth
revealing already present Tao
against body death Tao is still
