TTC 57



 Image result for 57
From the Dao comes calm, harmony, and justice
Yet among people, there is selfishness, cunning, falsity, violence
When people aspire to unnecessary things
They lose the Way

This is why the wise abandons vanity
And lets everything happen by itself
One has to begin changes with himself
I aspire to quietness and calm
I do not aspire to possessing many goods
I live with few worldly attachments and passions

Often, the best way to get something done
Is to do nothing
Let the Dao work for you
It is better to work smart and easy
Rather than hard and foolish
Be content with what you have
And content with what you do not
