The Daily Dharma – May 5, 2021

The Tao never does a thing

Yet there is nothing it doesn’t do

If a ruler could uphold it

People by themselves would change

And changing if their desires stirred

He could make them still

With simplicity that has no name

Stilled by nameless simplicity

They would not desire

And not desiring be at peace

The world would fix itself

Lao tzu

from The Taoteching
