Reading:

22.1 Be tactful and you remain whole; bend and you remain straight. The hollow is filled, the old is renewed. Economy is gain, excess is confusion..
22.2 Therefore sages embrace unity as model for the world.
22.3 Not seeing themselves, they are therefore clear. Not asserting themselves, they are therefore outstanding. Not congratulating themselves, they are therefore meritorious. Not taking pride in themselves, they last long.
22.4 It is just because they do not contend that no one in the world can contend with them.
22.5 Is it empty talk, the old saying that tact keeps you whole? When truthfulness is complete, it still resorts to this.

Tao Teh Ching - Cleary Translation

Meditation::

                       Better than a meaningless story
                            of a thousand words
                       is a single word of deep meaning
                       which, when heard, produces peace.
                                 -- The Dhammapada

Thich Nhat Hanh - Interrelationship

Interrelationship

by Thich Nhat Hanh


Original Language English

You are me, and I am you.
Isn't it obvious that we "inter-are"?
You cultivate the flower in yourself,
so that I will be beautiful.
I transform the garbage in myself,
so that you will not have to suffer.

I support you;
you support me.
I am in this world to offer you peace;
you are in this world to bring me joy.
