Meditations on the Tao Te Ching

Postby Letha.. » Fri Mar 26, 2010 5:14 pm

Tao Te Ching
by LAO TSU
Translation by Gia Fu Feng
and Jane English

Forty-Eight

In the pursuit of learning, every day something is acquired.
In the pursuit of Tao, every day something is dropped.

Less and less is done
Until non-action is achieved.
When nothing is done, nothing is left undone.

The world is ruled by letting things take their course.
It cannot be ruled by interfering.

It is far better to grasp the universe as it really is than to persist in delusion, however satisfying and reassuring.
