The Book of The Way, Day by Day

The Tao gives birth to One.
One gives birth to Two.
Two gives birth to Three.
Three gives birth to all things.

All things have their backs to the female
and stand facing the male.
When male and female combine,
all things achieve harmony.

Ordinary men hate solitude.
But the Master makes use of it,
embracing his aloneness, realizing
he is one with the whole universe.

DailyTao.org displays a new chapter of the Tao Te Ching everyday, for your enjoyment and enlightenment.
