TAO TE CHING 23


eva hesse


          TAO TE CHING 23


          Express yourself completely,

          then keep quiet.

          Be like the forces of nature:

          when it blows, there is only wind;

          when it rains, there is only rain;

          when the clouds pass, the sun shines
                                                        through.


          If you open yourself to the Tao,

          you are at one with the Tao

          and you can embody it completely.

          If you open yourself to insight,

          you are at one with insight

          and you can use it completely.

          If you open yourself to loss,

          you are at one with loss

          and you can use it completely.


          Open yourself to the Tao,

          then trust your natural responses;

          and everything will fall into place.
