The Tao Is Tao (133)

#133





                                                              133

                                                The ignorantly sincere
                                          vainly try to reduce their egos,
                                        but their egos grow only bigger.
                                                     The wise person
                                                     ignores his ego
                                                and serves selflessly
                                                    so that his self,
                                                starved of thought,
                                                      disappears.
                                 The person in total harmony with the Tao
                                                    has no ego,
                                              for she has entered
                                                     emptiness
                                                      and lives
                                                with compassion.
