Tao is the center of all things.
The true nature.
The hidden source.
The great wealth of those who are awake,
The great protector of those still sleeping.
If a man seems wicked,
Do not cast him away!
Awaken him with your words,
Elevate him with your deeds.
When the emperor is crowned,
Let others offer him discs of jade and teams of horses.
Offer him the Tao without moving your feet.
The ancient masters told us,
Seek and you will find,
Err and you will be forgiven.
This is where we find the world’s wonders.
