72nd Verse ~ Living the Love and Wisdom of the Tao

March 30, 2016

"My body is perfect, born at precisely the right time, and this is my perfect age. I accept myself as I am, and I surrender to the natural course of my body's destiny."


When people lack a sense of awe, there will be disaster. When people do not fear worldly power, a greater power will arrive.  Do not limit the view of yourself. Do not despise the conditions of your birth. Do not resist the natural course of your life. In this way you will never weary of this world. Therefore, the sage knows himself but makes o show of himself; loves himself but does not exalt himself. He prefers what is within to what is without.
