    I consider myself a Taoist. I love reading all the different translations. My favorites are 23, 72, 79 & 81…though I find my favorites often shift and change.

    If funny you wrote this and I found it because the day before I ended my own blog entry (about sustainability) with this one…

    The Way bears all things;

    Harmony nurtures them;

    Nature shapes them;

    Use completes them.

    Each follows the Way and honours harmony,

    Not by law,

    But by being.

    The Way bears, nurtures, shapes, completes,

    Shelters, comforts, and makes a home for them.

    Bearing without possessing,

    Nurturing without taming,

    Shaping without forcing,

    This is harmony.
