23. Simple and Quiet Words Can Transmit the Message

Simple and quiet words can transmit the message.
To learn this, study nature.
A fierce tornado won’t last all morning.
Neither does a sudden downpour continue all day.

The architect of nature is the great Tao.
If the great Tao cannot make fierce and sudden things last,
What hope does man have of sustaining force and temper?
Therefore, if you merge with nature, your actions follow the Tao.

If you open yourself to virtue, virtue will flow through you.
If you allow yourself to yield, you can learn what forcefulness cannot.

Open yourself to natural ways.
Follow the path of the Tao.
Your life will become much easier.
