Chapter 10 : 专气致柔

breath

载营魄抱一,能无离乎?专气致柔,能如婴儿乎?涤除玄览,能无疵乎?爱民治国,能无为乎?天门开阖,能为雌乎?明白四达,能无知乎。明白四达,能无知乎?生之畜之,生而不有,为而不恃,长而不宰,是谓玄德。

 

The essence of one’s consciousness and physique; are mutually synchronize; harmoniously attune to Dao. To achieve it, gather and focus one’s Qi, like the delicate & supple breath of babies. Eliminate distracting thoughts, dive deep & scrutinize one’s most inner mind; can there be no flaws found? Naturally one’s sensory organs, engaged and present in the universe; can serenity & peace be achieved? Realization of multitudes reasons & principles of action; is one capable to refrain from manipulation?

 

Understand this, and ease the need to dominate.

Let Dao guide your Qi, like a baby’s breath, and transcend into ethereal being.
