TAO TE CHING 28

two faces

Knowing masculinity

Preserve your femininity

Become the Valley of All Below Heaven

Become the Valley of All Below Heaven

And the Integrity of eternity

Will never depart

Revert and return to the infant child

Conscious of whiteness

Abide in darkness

Become the form of All Below Heaven

Become the form of All Below Heaven

And eternity’s integrity will never fail

Revert and return to the limitless

Know honour and glory

Sustain humility and obscurity

Become the chasm of the world

Become the chasm of the world

And the Integrity of the ancients

Will be fulfilled

Revert and return to the original being

Original being splits itself up

To enter separate vessels

In its hands

The sage becomes an enduring ruler

Because the greatest ruler

Does not cut things up
