at the moment of the big bang (sounded like a cab in traffic)
everything was center and that was the Way of things
things are a bit more spread out now (universal suburban sprawl)
and everything is still centered and the Way is equally everywhere
look at the ‘righteous’ and the ‘unrighteous’ (these are just names)
they may even be the same person at different times
they are equally endowed in the Way (I call it the silly name Tao)
and their ways will equally get them the Way
when you greet a ‘wiseman’ and a ‘fool’ (these are just names)
bow no differently for each is equally instructive and honored
when you or another causes harm (for who has not failed)
forgive equally for you and everyone are equally Tao
