Tao te ching

I am currently reading ‘Reversing heart disease’ by Dr. Dean Ornish.

He has quoted one verse from ‘Tao te Ching’ :

I liked it so much…could not resist putting it here.

Fill your bowl to the brim
and it will spill

Keep sharpening your knife
and it will blunt.
Chase after mony and security
and your heart will never unclench.
Care about people’s approval
and you will be their prisoner.

Do your work,then step back.
The only path to serenity.
