The Tao, Chapter 34

The Tao, Chapter 34

The great Tao flows unobstructed in every direction.

All things rely on it to conceive and be born,
and it does not deny even the smallest of creation.

When it has accomplished great wonders,
it does not claim them for itself.

It nourishes infinite worlds,
yet it doesn’t seek to master the smallest creature.

Since it is without wants and desires,
it can be considered humble.

All of creation seeks it for refuge
yet it does not seek to master or control.

Because it does not seek greatness;
it is able to accomplish truly great things.

— Translated by J. H. McDonald
