Yesterday the tumulus of yellow earth buried the bleached bones,
To-night under the red silk curtain reclines the newly-matching couple!
Gold fills the coffers, silver fills the boxes,
But in a twinkle, the beggars will all abuse you!
While you deplore the life of others is not long,
You forget that you yourself are coming alone to follow the suit!
You educate your sons with all proprietary,
But they may someday, 'tis hard to say, become thieves;
Though you choose, persistently, for the prospective consort with fat meat and fine grain
You may, who can say, fall into someplace of easy virtue!
Through your dislike of the gauze hat as mean,
You have come to be locked-in a cangue;
Yesterday, poor partner, you felt cold in a tattered coat,
To-day, you despise the purple embroidered dress as long!
Confusion reigns far and wide! You have just sung your part, I come on the boards,
Instead of yours, you regard another as your native land;
What utter perversion!
In one word, it comes to this we make wedding clothes for others! (We sow for others to reap.)

The crazy limping Taoist clapped his hands. "Your interpretation is clear," he remarked with a hearty laugh,
"your interpretation is clear!"

Shih-yin promptly said nothing more than,--"Walk on;" And seizing the stole from the Taoist's shoulder, he
flung it over his own. He did not, however, return home, but leisurely walked away, in company with the
eccentric Taoist priest.

5-18. Chuang Tzu / Chapter 11: On Tolerance

The Yellow Emperor presided upon the throne for nineteen years, and his laws were put in force all over the
empire, when he heard that Master Kuang Ch'eng was living on the Mountain of K'ung t'ung. He therefore
went to visit him. "I have heard that you, Sir, have mastered the Perfect Tao. May I venture to ask about the
essence of the Perfect Tao?" he said. "I would like to get hold of the essence of Heaven and Earth to secure
good harvests and feed my people. I would also like to control the yin and yang principles to fulfill the life of
all living things. How may this be done?"

Master Kuang Ch'eng said, "What you want to learn about pertains to the true essence of things, but what you
want to control pertains to the remnants of things. Ever since you began to govern the empire, rain falls
before the cloud vapors have even gathered, the plants and trees shed their leaves before they have even
turned yellow, and the light of the sun and moon grows more and more sickly. To be as shallow and narrow
as with the mind of a flattering and glib talker, how could you be fit to talk about the Perfect Tao with!"

The Yellow Emperor withdrew, gave up his empire, built himself a solitary hut, sat upon white straw. For
three months he remained in retirement. Then he went once more to request an interview. Master Kuang
Ch'eng was lying with his head towards the south. The Yellow Emperor approached from below to creep
forward on his knees, bowed his head twice and said, "I have heard that you, Sir, have mastered the Perfect
Tao. I venture to ask about the administration of the body. What should I do in order to live a long life?"

Master Kuang Ch'eng sat up with a start. "Excellent, this question of yours! Come, I will tell you about the
Perfect Tao. The essence of the Perfect Tao is profoundly obscure and vague; the subtlety of the Perfect Tao
is profoundly elusive and stillness. See nothing, hear nothing, enfold Shen in quietude and the body will go
right of its own accord. Be still, be pure, do not labor your body, do not churn up your Jing, and then you can
live a long life. There is nothing to be beheld by eyes, nothing to be heard by ears, nothing to be known by
heart, then your Shen shall stay in guard for the body, and the body will thereby enjoy long life. Cherish that
which is within you, block off what is outside you, much knowledge will do harm.

Then I will lead you up above the Great Brilliance, to the source of the Perfect Yang; I will guide you
through the profound and elusive Gate, to the source of the Perfect Yin. Heaven and earth have their own
dominator, the yin and yang their own storehouses. Guard carefully your body, and material things will
prosper by themselves. As for myself, I guard the original One, and proceed to rest in harmony with all.
Therefore I have been able to live for twelve hundred years and my body has not grown old and my body has
never suffered any decay."

The Yellow Emperor bowed twice and said, "Master Kuang Ch'eng is naturally to be called Heaven!"
Master Kuang Ch'eng said, "Come, I will tell you. This Thing I have been talking about is inexhaustible, and
yet men all suppose that it is mortal. This Thing I have been talking about is unfathomable, and yet men all
suppose that it is limited. He who attains Tao that I talk about shall become almighty sovereign high up, and
an universal king down below. But he who fails to attain Tao that I talk about shall behold the light at
beginning and return to dust at last. Nowadays, all the things that flourish originate from dust and to the dust
they return. So I will take leave of you, to enter the gate of the inexhaustible and wander in the land of
infinity. My brilliance form a triad with the light of the sun and moon and my entity partakes in the
constancy of Heaven and Earth. Who steps close to me I remain unconscious of its approach, who departs

from me I remain unconscious of its departure. All men have to die, I alone will endure forever!"


5-19. Yelling at water

Once upon a time, there was a man who was tired and thirsty from traveling. He drank some fresh running
water from the wooden bucket. After he had had enough, he raised his hands in front of the water and said, "I
have had enough to drink. Stop flowing!"

The water went on. Losing his temper, he yelled, "I told you to stop. Why don't you listen?"

On seeing this, an onlooker said, "You are so ignorant. Why don't you just leave?"

Thereupon, the onlooker drew him away.

So are the people at large.


5-20. Chapter 6: The Great Supreme ( )

Life and Death are a part of destiny. They remain constant as the succession of dark and dawn - the operation
by Heaven. They are far beyond any interference of mankind because of the materialized sentience and
sentiments. If men look upon Heaven as father and love his father with the body, then how much more
should he do for that “which is even greater then Heaven!” If a man is willing to looks upon a ruler as
superior to himself and to sacrifice for him, then how much more should he do so for “the very true!”

When the fountain dries up and the fishes are left stranded upon the ground, they moisten each other with
their damp and wet each other down with spittle but it would be far better if they could forget each other in
their native rivers and lakes. Instead of praising Yao and condemning Chieh, it would be better to forget both
of them and trace back along the Way which leads up to the transformation .

The Earth burdens me with this form, labors me with life, eases me in old age, and rests me in death. And
surely that which does the best to accomplish the being of my life should do the same to attain my death.

Hide a boat in the ravine and the fishing net in the swamp, which is generally considered safe. But at
midnight a strong man may come and carry it away on his back, and in sleep you do not know what
happened. People may think they do right to hide little things in big ones, and yet there still exists the
possibility of losing them. But if you entrust the whole universe to the whole universe, and therefrom there
will be no escape. This makes for the almighty passions for the constancy of all things.

If to have been cast in human form supplies a source of joy, then how much joy can be possibly calculated
when in an effort to know that which is now the human form may undergo countless transitions from the time
of no beginning to the time of the infinite? Therefore, the Sage wanders in the realm where all things can
never be lost, to endure with all eternally. For if we still emulate those who do well graciously in getting
along with the young and the old, with those who start well and ends well with all, how much more so that
which the ten thousand things are tied to and upon which all changing phenomena depend?
