39



 Image result for 39
In days of old all things were whole
All the sky was clear
All the earth was stable
All the mountains were firm
All the riverbeds were full
All of nature was fertile

But, losing clarity, the sky became cloudy
Losing stability, the earth shook
Losing strength, the mountains sank into the sea
Losing water, the riverbeds ran dry and cracked
Losing fertility, nature disappeared

Do not forget that oneness is the essence of harmony
To be at peace is to be simple
You must go beyond the common
But not to an extreme
Do not be a grain of sand nor a rare piece of jade
When there is balance, there is harmony
Where this is, is the Dao
