Tao Te Ching Meditation - Chapter 42: On Dying By The AK15


42.1 The Way produces one;
       one produces two,
       two produce three,
       three produce all beings:
42.2 all beings bear yin and embrace yang,
       with a mellowing energy for harmony.
42.3 The things people dislike are only to be alone, lacking, and unworthy;
       yet these are what monarchs call themselves.
42.4 Therefore people may gain from loss, and may lose from gain.
42.5 What others teach, I also teach.
       The strong cannot master their death:
       I take this to be the father of teachings.
