Give up yourself and you become whole

Bend and you will straighten

Be empty and you will be filled

Decay and you will be renewed

Want and you will acquire

Fulfill and you will become wanting

The sage accepts the world

As the world accepts the Tao

He does not display himself

And so is clearly seen

He does not seek commendation

And so is recognized

He does not boast

And so is credited

He does not take pride in himself

And so endures

He does not make war

And so none do battle with him

The ancients said, "Accept and you become whole"

Once whole, the whole is as if your home
