Tao Te – 56

to know is to know
to talk of knowing is to talk of knowing

close your explanation
safeguard your senses
ease you edginess
clarify your problem
veil your brightness
anticipate oneness with dust
these are primary steps

those practiced in achieving this knowing
no longer distinguish friend from enemy
good from harm or honor from disgrace
this is deep satisfaction
