The softest thing in the universe
Overcomes the hardest thing in the universe.
That without substance can enter where there is no room.
Hence I know the value of non-action.
Teaching without words and work without doing
Are understood by very few.

The softest force in the universe
can overcome the hardest of objects.
Something without substance
can pass through the space between atoms.
That's how I know
about the power of doing nothing.
The silent teachings
and the power of doing nothing
can only be understood
by a few people.
