Know the masculine and keep the feminine

28

Know the masculine and keep the feminine,
and be the valley of the world.
Be the valley of the world,
and eternal integrity will not desert you.
If eternal integrity does not desert you,
you will return to the state of infancy.

Know the pure and keep the impure,
and be the valley of the world.
Be the valley of the world,
and eternal integrity will suffice.
If eternal integrity suffices,
you will return to the state of the uncarved block.

Know the white and keep the black,
and be a model for the world.
Be a model for the world,
and eternal integrity will not waver.
If eternal integrity does not waver,
you will return to the infinite.

When the uncarved block is cut,
it becomes tools.
When the master is used,
he becomes the ruler of officials.
Great carving cuts little.

Sorry. A day late.
