Do you want to save the world?
I don’t think it can be done.
The world is sacred–
It can neither be changed nor improved.
Tamper and it’s ruined;
Grasp and it’s gone.

Allow your life to unfold naturally.
Know that it, too, is sacred.
Just as you breathe in and breathe out,
There is a time for being ahead and behind,
In motion and at rest,
Rigorous and exhausted,
Safe and in danger.

The smart man sees things as they are
Without trying to control them.
He lets them go their own way,
While he remains at the center of the circle.
