#51. Guiding, But Not Interfering
The Tao gives birth to all things.
It nourishes them, teaches them, shapes them, And guides them to reach
Their true expression.
Therefore, all things honor the Tao By virtue of their existence.
The Tao produces, but not possesses,
It gives to all, but doesn’t take.
Though it guides, it interferes with none.
