Tao Te – 29

are you out to conquer or improve the universe
wrong construct

the universe is the universe
its perfection is beyond implementation
try to change it – ruin
try to freeze it in place – loss

some experiences flash by others drag interminably
some breathing is constricted some free
some days bring strength some sap energy
sometimes I’m up sometimes down

to participate wisely
avoid extremes and complacency
excess and depletion
