When people see some things as beautiful
other things become ugly
When people see some things as good
other things become bad

Being and non-being create each other
Difficult and easy support each other
Long and short define each other
High and low depend on each other
Before and after follow each other

Therefore the Master
acts without doing anything
and teaches without saying anything
Things arise and she lets them come
things disappear and she lets them go
She has but doesn't possess
acts but doesn't expect
When her work is done, she forgets it
That is why it lasts forever
