Verse 22

Bid on NFT

"Surrender brings perfection" 
The crooked become straight 
The empty become full 
The worn become new 
    Have little and gain much 
    Have much and be confused 
So the Sage embraces the One 
    and becomes a model for the world 
Without showing himself, he shines forth 
Without promoting himself, he is distinguished 
Without claiming reward, he gains endless merit 
Without seeking glory, his glory endures 
The Sage knows how to follow 
    so he comes to command 
He does not compete 
    so no one under Heaven can compete with him 
The ancient saying, 
    "Surrender brings perfection," 
    is not just empty words 
Truly, surrender brings perfection 
    and perfection brings the whole universe
