Tao Te Ching – Verse 26


The inner is foundation of the outer

The still is master of the restless


TaoThe Sage travels all day

*****yet never leaves his inner treasure

Though the views are captivating and beg attention

*****he remains calm and uninvolved

Tell me, does the lord of a great empire

*****go out begging for rice?


One who seeks his treasure in the outer world

*****is cut off from his own roots

Without roots, he becomes restless

Being restless, his mind is weak

And with a mind such as this

*****he loses all command below Heaven
