Extract from Chaung Tzu

Submitted by OpenhandTeam on Thu, 04/13/2006 - 07:19

    "As long as the tower is guarded
    By the invisible Protector...

    Who acts unconsciously, and whose actions
    Go astray when they become deliberate,
    Reflexive, and intentional

    The unconsciousness
    And entire sincerity of Tao
    Are disturbed by any effort
    At self-conscious demonstration.
    All such demonstrations
    Are lies.

    When one displays himself
    In this ambiguous way
    The world outside storms in
    And imprisons him.

    He is no longer protected
    By the sincerity of Tao."
