The Way to Life - A Tao Te Ching


to find unity, be aware of your instincts
bring your animal nature
into the care of your heart and mind
be at one to find oneness
keep all of your energies in harmony
like a newborn child
persistently cleanse your inner vision
to witness the perfection of nature

lead honestly
without resorting to subterfuge
be as steadfast as a bird incubating its ggs
despite the endless rain of contradictions
be patient in your humility
while consistently fulfilling your original intent

give life and nurture it
give openly, without wanting credit
lead by empowering your followers
this is true integrity
