Heaven and Earth are without bias,
Treating the Ten Thousand Things
As precious meaningless straw dogs.

The sage lives without bias,
Regarding humankind
as precious straw dogs.

The space between Heaven and Earth
is like a bellows…
Empty and yet, providing a never-ending supply
of words and meaning,
exhausting itself.

Better to chose moderation
and pay attention to the Silence within.
