Tao Te Ching

Lao Tsu

An  American's Digital Exploration



When people see things  as beautiful, ugliness is created

When people see things as good,

evil is created

Being and non-being create each other.

Difficult and easy support each other.

Long and  short define each other.

High and low depend on each other.

Before and after follow each other.

Therefore a Master can act without doing anything

and teach without saying a word.

Things come her way and she does not stop them

Things leave and she lets them go.

She has without possessing,

and acts without any expectations.

When her work is done,  she takes no credit.

That is why it will last forever.
