If you want to be in accordance with the Tao,
Don't deny the phenomenal world.
When you recognise the source of the senses,
You are open to enlightened perception.
The wise are passive,
The foolish tie themselves in knots:
Though the truth is undivided,
They become attached to particular things.
To try to catch the wind with the hand
Is a grave error.
The foolish vacillate between
Having and not having.
The wise show no preferences.
