Adapted from a translation of
The Tao Te Ching by
Tolbert McCarroll

Empty everything out; 
Hold fast to the 
underlying Stillness.
Even though all things are stirring,
Watch for the Movement of Return.
All things grow and thereafter
return to the Root from which they came.
Returning to the Root and
Folding back into the Stillness.
Fulfills their Destiny.
That which has fulfilled its Destiny
becomes part of the Always-so
Be aware of the Always-so and Awaken.
