TAO TE CHING 49

The sage’s mind is not set in stone

The people’s hearts and minds

Are his own heart and mind

To the good

I am good

To those without goodness

I am also good

For that is Integrity’s goodness!

To the sincere

I am sincere

To the insincere

I am also sincere

That is Integrity’s sincerity!

The sage’s presence

Brings harmony into the world

His heart and mind are universal

Undifferentiated from the actions of the world

All beings are his children
