Verse 55

Bid on NFT

One who embraces Tao 
will become pure and innocent 
    like a newborn babe 
Deadly insects will not sting him 
Wild beasts will not attack him 
Birds of prey will not strike him 
He is oblivious to the union of male and female 
    yet his vitality is full 
    his inner spirit is complete 
He can cry all day without straining 
    so perfect is his harmony 
    so magically does he blend with this world 
Know this harmony—it brings the Eternal 
Know the Eternal—it brings enlightenment 
A full life—this is your blessing 
A gentle heart—this is your strength 
Things in harmony with the Tao remain 
Things that are forced, grow for a while 
    but then wither away 
This is not Tao 
Whatever is not Tao 
    comes to an early end
