Tao Te Ching Meditation Chapter 49: Clouding


49.1 Sages have no fixed mind;
       they make the minds of the people their mind:

49.2 they improve the good,
       and also improve those who are not good;
       that virtue is good.

49.3 They make sure of the true,
       and they make sure of the untrue too;
       that virtue is sure.

49.4 The relation of sages to the world is one of concern:
       they cloud their minds for the world;
       all people pour into their ears and eye,
       and sages render them innocent.
