Sixteen

Calmly abide in the center of the

cyclone.

Witness the ten thousand things

as they arise and have their moment.

Then patiently watch all things return

to the common source.

Returning to the common source is

peace, which is nature's way.

If you forget about nature's balance,

you will stumble in sadness and worry.

When you remember nature's balance,

you will become compassionate,

independent,

kind-hearted, graceful,

patient as the oak tree,

playful as the sparrow.
