Tao Te Ching #49, I

In the space between me and you

there is no space.

Sometimes (oftentimes) I get in the way

and step back

or move aside

or kowtow

or threaten.

But then we breathe

and the breath of all beings

makes the space small again.

 

And when I leave,

the space is gone.

So I must practice

leaving.
