Do No Harm: Part 2

56

One who knows does not speak.

One who speaks does not know.

Close your holes, shut your doors,

Soften your sharpness, loosen your knots.

Soften your glare and merge with the everyday.

This is called mysteriously attained oneness.

Though you cannot possess it, you are intimate with it

And at the same time, distant.

Though you cannot possess it, you are benifitted by it,

And harmed by it.

You cannot possess it, but are esteemed through it

And humbled by it.

Therefore the world values you.

Lao Tzu from the Tao Te Ching
