te

 

Well planted, not uprooted.

Well embraced, never lost.

Descendants will continue

The ancestral rituals.

 

Maintain oneself:

TE becomes real.

Maintain the family:

TE becomes abundant.

Maintain the community:

TE becomes extensive.

Maintain the country:

TE becomes prolific.

Maintain the world:

TE becomes omnipresent.

 

Therefore,

Through self contemplate self,

Through family contemplate family,

Through community contemplate community,

Through country contemplate country,

Through world contemplate world.

 

How do I know the world?

 

I tz’u

Like this!

 

-Lao-Tzu
