Verse 54

Bid on NFT

Truth, once established, can never be uprooted 
Goodness, once imbibed, can never be stripped away 
    A sacrifice to a higher cause is never lost 
    An offering to an ancestor never goes to waste 
When a person embodies Tao 
    his heart becomes true 
When a family embodies Tao 
    it thrives 
When a village embodies Tao 
    it is protected 
When a country embodies Tao 
    it prospers 
When the world embodies Tao 
    it reveals its perfection 
Tao is everywhere 
    it has become everything 
To truly see it, see it as it is 
In a person, see is as a person 
In a family, see it as a family 
In a country, see it as a country 
In the world, see it as the world 
How have I come to know all this? 
Tao has shown me— 
    Tao as all this!
