Tao Te Ching, 10 [Apr. 13th, 2009|07:29 am]

Can you embrace your souls in unity,
and keep them from parting?

Can you focus your breath
gently as a baby?

Can you wash the dark mirror
free of dust?

When you love the people and govern the country
can you be unknown?

When heaven’s gate opens and closes,
can you be a mother bird?

When your vision shines in the four directions,
can you be still?

Giving birth and feeding them,
giving birth without owning,
acting without expectation,
leading without domination:
this is called dark power.
