ATTAIN to utmost Emptiness.
Cling single-heartedly to interior peace.
While all things are stirring together,
I only contemplate the Return.
For flourishing as they do,
Each of them will return to its root.
To return to the root is to find peace.
To find peace is to fulfill one's destiny.
To fulfill one's destiny is to be constant.
To know the Constant is called Insight.
If one does not know the Constant,
One runs blindly into disasters.
If one knows the Constant,
One can understand and embrace all.
If one understands and embraces all,
One is capable of doing justice.
To be just is to be kingly;
To be kingly is to be heavenly;
To be heavenly is to be one with the Tao;
To be one with the Tao is to abide forever.
Such a one will be safe and whole
Even after the dissolution of his body.

RETURN




Become a hub
Of a wheel
Must remove
All corrosion
Being a child again

For the worthy
Who read it

Is constant
Embraces all
Who are worthy

So the warrior spirit
Can enter
Open heart
Evil can escape
Replaced by hero spirit
Where does the evil go?
It was never there
Part of being worthy
Opening joints
Causes returning
To root
Hollowness
Is the way
To heaven/lineage
Calmness
Is giving up
To earth/China

Relaxing back
