The Tao – All is Balance

The Tao
gives birth to One.
One gives birth to yin and yang.
Yin and yang give birth to
all things. Now
forget this.

The complete whole
is the complete whole.
So also is any part
the complete whole.
Forget this, too.

Pain and
happiness are simply
conditions of the ego.
Forget the ego.

Time and
space are changing
and dissolving, not fixed and real.
They can be thought of as
accessories, but don’t
think of them.

Supernatural beings
without form extend their
life force throughout the universe
to support beings both formed and
unformed. But never mind this;
the supernatural is just a part
of nature, like the

subtle truth
emphasizes neither
and includes

All truth
is in tai chi:
to cultivate the
mind, body, or spirit,
simply balance the polarities.
If people understood this,
peace and harmony
would naturally

But forget
about understanding
and harmonizing and making
all things one. The universe is already
a harmonious oneness;
just realize

If you
scramble about
in search of inner peace,
you will lose your
inner peace.

(Hua hu Jing)
