Tao Te Ching Meditation - Chapter 45: On Things Not Being What They Seem To Be

Reading:

45.1 Great completeness seems incomplete;
       its use is never exhausted.
       Great fullness seems empty;
       its use is never ended.
       Great directness seems restrained,
45.2 great skill seems inept,
       great eloquence seems inarticulate.
45.3 Movement overcomes cold,
       stillness overcomes heat.
       Clear stillness is right for the world.
