Tao is non-action,
yet nothing remains undone.

When leaders follow the Tao,
the Ten Thousand Things are transformed.

When old habits arise,
I will press them into silence with the uncarved block
called Tao.

The simplicity of the uncarved block
will free old habits.

Without old habits,
everything under Heaven will be settled.
