Chapter 7 : 天地无私

 

天长地久。天地所以能长且久者,以其不自生,故能长生。是以圣人後其身而身先,外其身而身存。非以其无私邪!故能成其私。

 

The enduring Universe & Nature ; does not live for themselves. They have no self-preservation ; thus they are ever-lasting. Nature foster & nurture all creations ; without consideration of gains. Thus nature & universe attains longevity & perpetuity. The wise can attain much, because of selflessness. Just as nature without agendas, can accomplish wonders.
