Heaven and earth are not benevolent

5

Heaven and earth are not benevolent;
they treat the ten thousand things as straw dogs.
The masters are not benevolent;
they treat the common people as straw dogs.

The space between the heavens and earth:
how like a bellows it is.
Empty, but not exhausted,
the more it pumps, the more it produces.

Hearing too many words is exhausting;
better to remain in the center.
