Chapter 32: Sacred Ethics

The Path to Righteousness is always obscured.

The Straight and Narrow:
There is none in all of creation
who is not subject to its rule.

Noblemen and kings alike
have the ability to guard it;
the Ten Thousand Things desires command
of one’s self as an object.

Heaven and Earth mutually join,
by falling drops of sweet dew.

The people who have no rulers are all righteous,
because they are all equals.
Yet, begin to create a winner’s circle,
and you’ll find one already exists.

Man also shall know to stop,
when to stop will avoid danger.

To give an example of Tao:
It exists everywhere,
just as in the creeks, the plains, and valleys,
it flows in the rivers, oceans, and seas.
