The Tao is Tao (109)

#109






                                                                      109

                                                Knowledge based on ignorance
                                                              decreases fear
                                                    only to increase it tenfold.
                                                              Only dwelling in
                                                                  emptiness
                                                            truly banishes fear.
                                                              The Taoist sage
                                                                       lives
                                                                  without fear,
                                          like an innocent child unaware of the  world,
                                                  and he carries his knowledge
                                                        as if  it does not exist.
                                                        His faith is complete.
