Verse 31 – Remaining Centered with the Tao
Learn not to expand your energies or passion on things of little or no consequence. Remaining still and reserved as if you are pre-occupied with your own enthusiasm. To those around you, simply smile at what living brings to greet you each day and to trouble say ah so!
