TAO TE CHING 52

All below Heaven has a common origin –

The mother of all below Heaven

Receiving a mother

You know you’re her child

Knowing you’re her child

You return to abide with your mother

When the self disappears

Danger depart

Seal your passages

Shut your gates

To the end of your life

You will be free from trouble

Open your mouth

Interfere with everything

To the end of your life

You will know no freedom

Seeing the small is enlightenment

Maintaining gentleness is strength

Use your inner radiance

To reawaken enlightenment

Refusing to surrender

To the calamity of selfhood:

This is called

Entering the Absolute

The Cultivation of Eternity

The Everlasting Lesson
