The Tao is the law of nature,
Which you can’t depart from even
For one instant.
If you could depart from it,
It wouldn’t be the Tao.
Thus the mature person looks into
Their own heart and respects what
Is unseen and unheard.
Nothing is more manifest than the hidden;
Nothing is more obvious than the unseen.
Thus the mature person pays
Attention to what is happening
In the innermost self.
