Tao Te – 54

that firmly grounded cannot be uprooted
that firmly grasped cannot escape
generation by generation these are honored

nourish integrity and it becomes real
support it in the family and it grows
resource it in the village and it is perpetuated
tax for it in the nation and it becomes abundant
loose it into the universe and it backgrounds every act

trust the body as body
trust family to be family
trust a village to become neighbors
trust the nation to remember its intention
trust the universe to follow its trajectory

how can this be known
by trusting honorable integrity
