Lao-Tzu #48: Mastery of the world is achieved by letting things take their natural course.

48

 

One who seeks knowledge learns something new every day.

One who seeks the Tao unlearns something new every day.

Less and less remains until you arrive at non-action.

When you arrive at non-action,

nothing will be left undone.

 

Mastery of the world is achieved

by letting things take their natural course.

You can not master the world by changing the natural way.
