More Tao verses that wrote themselves


People conceal themselves.
Perhaps they are afraid to lose their good name.
People want sages who reveal themselves.
People want celebrity sages.

Dao sages cannot reveal themselves
because they do not conceal.

People like to have a lot.
Some people have a lot and give a lot.
Some people have a lot and give little.
Some people have little and give little.
Some people have little and give a lot.
Dao sages give everything.

How can they give everything?
Because they have nothing.

People are full—
full of themselves,
full of opinions
full of doubts
 full of certainties
full of learning.
Because they are full, they have lots to give.
Dao sages are empty and have nothing to give.

How can Dao sages give everything
and yet have nothing to give?

Because they undertake the giving that is empty,
the giving that is constant,
the giving non-giving of the Flow.
