Tao Te Ching  29

Do you want to improve the world?

I do not think it can be done.

The world is sacred.

It can’t be improved.

If you tamper with it, you’ll ruin it.

If you treat it like an object, you’ll lose it.

There is a time for being ahead,

A time for being behind;

A time for being in motion,

A time for being at rest;

A time for vigorous,

A time for being exhausted;

A time for safe,

A time for being in danger.

The Master sees things as they are,

Without trying to control them.

She lets them go their own way,

And resides in the center of the circle.
