Perfecting the spirit seems useless,
But its usefulness is long-lasting.
Filling the body with spirit looks empty,
But it creates health in all aspects.
A life of peace and purpose seems dull,
But it is the most fulfilling way to live.
The greatest skill that is achieved
Passes through all stages of clumsiness.
By allowing things to happen, events take their own course.
By giving up your way, you can discover The Way.
