Tao 10

Can you reconcile your own being with that which is?
Can you engage in the moment without preconceived notions, embracing the purity and potential of a newborn?
Can any one hold the full and correct view?
Can you cultivate virtue without imposition?
Can you bear the flow of life and death as a gift rather than a burden?
Can you understand the changes of the world around you without claiming to know it?

Plant and nourish.
Create without possessing.

To aid without expectation,
to guide without force,
this is what te looks like.
