Tao Te Ching 52

When the world was formed Tao was its mother.
Knowing the mother we know the children.
Seeing that they /we still cling to the mother
we can live our lives in confident understanding of our existance.

Be self-disciplined –
   Mind your own business –
      Live a trouble-free life.
Be ignorant and idle –
   Poke your nose into other people's business –
      Expect endless grief.

Look at detail objectively,
   and it gives you the bigger picture:
Maintain flexibility,
   and you will achieve resilience:
Use your in-sight to see clearly:
   Avoid life's pitfalls …
Achieve peace of mind.
