Verse 51

Bid on NFT

Tao gives all things life 
    Te gives them fulfilment 
Nature is what shapes them 
Living is what brings them to completion 
Every creature honours Tao and worships Te 
    not by force 
    but through its own living and breathing 
Though Tao gives life to all things 
    Te is what cultivates them 
Te is that magic power that 
    raises and rears them 
    completes and prepares them 
    comforts and protects them 
To create without owning 
To give without expecting 
To fill without claiming 
    This is the profound action of Tao 
    The highest expression of Te
