Tao Te Ching Meditation -- Chapter 37: It Is All So Simple.


37.1 The Way is always uncontrived,
       yet there's nothing it doesn't do.
37.2 If lords and monarchs could keep to it,
       all beings would evolve spontaneously.
       When they have evolved and want to act,
       I would stabilize them with nameless simplicity.
37.3 Even nameless simplicity would not be wanted.
       By not wanting, there is calm,
       and the world will straighten itself.
