Tao Te Ching – 51

“Every being in the universe,
is an expression of the Tao.
It springs into existence,
unconscious, perfect, free,
takes on the physical body,
lets circumstances complete it.
That is why every being
spontaneously honours that Tao.

The Tao gives birth to all beings,
nourishes them, maintains them,
cares for them, comforts them, protects them,
takes them back to itself,
creating without possessing,
acting without expecting,
guiding without interfering.
That is why love of the Tao
is in the very nature of things.”
