The man in whom Tao acts without impediment
Harms no other being by his actions
Yet he does not know himself to be "kind", to be "gentle"...
He does not bother with his own interests
And does not despise others who do
While he does not struggle to make money
He does not make a virtue of poverty
He goes his way without relying on others
And does not pride himself on walking alone
While he does not follow the crowd
He won't complain of those who do
Rank and reward
Make no appeal to him
Disgrace and shame
Do not deter him.
He is not always looking for right and wrong
Always deciding "Yes" or "No."
Thomas Merton 'The Way of Chuang Tzu'
