The Tao is the very model of not-doing
Yet leaving nothing undone.
If princes and potentates would abide by it
The ten thousand beings would reform themselves naturally.

And should old desires stir
I would subdue them by doing without names,
By the natural simplicity of not naming.

Where nothing is named there are no desires.
Free of desire one is at peace
And all under heaven finds calm of itself.
