Tao Te Ching Meditation -- Chapter 12 Detachment From Phenomena And Desire.


12.1 Colors blind people's eyes;
    sounds deafen their ears;
    flavors spoil people's palates,
12.2 the chase and the hunt craze people's minds;
    goods hard to obtain make people's actions harmful.
12.3 Therefore sages work for the middle and not the eyes,
    leaving the latter and taking the former.
