DAILY SELECTIONS FROM LAO-TZU’S TAO TE CHING — JULY 15, 2019

The great Tao flows everywhere.
All things are born from it,
yet it doesn’t create them.
It pours itself into its work,
yet it makes no claim.
It nourishes infinite worlds,
yet it doesn’t hold on to them.
Since it is merged with all things
and hidden in their hearts,
it can be called humble.
Since all things vanish into it
and it alone endures,
it can be called great.
It isn’t aware of its greatness;
thus it is truly great.

-Lao-tzu- (Tao Te Ching, verse 34, interpretation by Stephen Mitchell)
