Tao Te Ching - a message of Peace, of Simplicity, of Humility


<< Tao 11 | Tao 13 >>

The five colors blind the eye.
The five tones deafen the ear.
The five flavors dull the taste.
Racing and hunting madden the mind.
Precious things lead one astray.

Therefore the sage is guided by what he feels and not by what he sees.
He lets go of that and chooses this.
