第十六章:重為輕根

致虛極,守靜篤。萬物并作,吾以觀復。夫物芸芸,各復歸其根。歸根曰靜,靜曰復命。復命曰常,知常曰明。不知常,妄,凶。知常容,容乃公,公乃王,王乃天,天乃道,道乃久,歿身不殆。

English Translation

Empty the self completely;
Embrace perfect peace.
The world will rise and move;
Watch it return to rest.
All the flourishing things
Will return to their source.

This return is peaceful;
It is the flow of nature,
An eternal decay and renewal.
Accepting this brings enlightenment,
Ignoring this brings misery.

Who accepts nature's flow becomes all-cherishing;
Being all-cherishing he becomes impartial;
Being impartial he becomes magnanimous;
Being magnanimous he becomes natural;
Being natural he becomes one with the Way;
Being one with the Way he becomes immortal:
Though his body will decay, the Way will not.
