Tao Te Ching Meditation - Chapter 73: Courage In Caution


73.1 Boldness in daring means killing;
       boldness in not daring means life.
73.2 These two may help and may harm.
       Who knows the reason
       for what heaven dislikes?
       That is why even sages find it hard for them.
73.3 The Way of heaven
       wins well without contest,
       responds well without speech,
       comes of itself uncalled,
       relaxed yet very resourceful.
73.4 The net of heaven is vast;
       the holes are large
       but don't let slip.
