Like a Newborn

Who is filled with the Tao is like a newborn

Wasps and snakes will not bite him

Hawks and tigers will not claw him

His bones are soft yet his grasp is sure

For his flesh is supple

His mind is innocent yet his body is virile

For his vigor is plentiful

His song is long-lasting yest his voice is sweet

For his grace is perfect

But conceptualizing the Tao creates abstraction

And following abstraction creates ritual

Exceeding nature creates calamity

Controlling nature creates violence
