Seventy-Three

The way flows like water;

does what it does,

goes where it goes,

never hurries,

yet always arrives on time.


Who can understand how it works?


The way

has no aim,

needs no aim,

because the way

and the target

are one.


The only thing

one can say about the way

is that it embraces all.

And that which embraces all

is that which prevails.
