Lao-Tzu #71: Knowing you don’t know is wholeness. Thinking you know is a disease. Only by recognizing that you have an illness can you move to seek a cure.

71

 

Knowing you don’t know is wholeness.

Thinking you know is a disease.

Only by recognizing that you have an illness

can you move to seek a cure.

 

The Master is whole because

she sees her illnesses and treats them,

and thus is able to remain whole.
