TAO TE CHING 29

deep blue

Desiring to take All Below Heaven

And make it do your bidding

I comprehend that such ventures

Never end well

All Below Heaven

Is a vessel for divinity

And should not be tampered with

Those who tamper with it

Destroy it

Those who seize it

Lose it

Hence, sometimes leading

Sometimes following

Sometimes hot

Sometimes cold

Sometimes strong

Sometimes weak

Sometimes overcoming

Other times giving in

Therefore the sage

Spurns excess

Spurns extravagance

Spurns indulgence
