DescriptionWhen people see some things as beautiful,
other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
other things become bad.
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 the Master
acts without doing anything
and teaches without saying anything.
Things arise and she lets them come;
things disappear and she lets them go.
she has but doesn't expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever.
I've read so much, and still haven't found anything to believe in... no need to tell me I should feel more and think less, I've read about it already :P not that I'm worried anyway.
I've read the Book of Tao and didn't even understand 1/3 of it, didn't believe another third, haven't decided about 2/9... but 1/9 of it, is actually pretty good and put me in a sweet zen state, that I was so needing lately.
Quando Pessoas vêem algo como bonito,
outras coisas se tornam feias.
Quando pessoas vêem algo como bom,
outras coisas se tornam más.
Ser e não-ser criam um ao outro.
Difícil e fácil suportam um ao outro.
Longo curto definem um ao outro.
Alto e baixo dependem um do outro.
Antes e depois seguem um ao outro.
Portando a Mestra
age sem fazer nada
e ensina sem dizer nada.
Coisas surgem e ela os deixa vir;
Coisas desaparecem e ela os deixa ir.
ela tem mas não tem expectativas.
Quando seu trabalho está feito, ela o esquece.
É por isso que ele dura eternamente.
