Como el Agua / Like Water

–por Lao Tsé (Dec 19, 2013)  [English below]

RipplesLas y los mejores, como el agua,
benefician a tod@s y no compiten.
Fluyen en sitios que la gente suele despreciar.
Poniendo a otr@s antes que a ell@s mism@s,
se encuentran ell@s al frente
y así se acercan más al Tao.
En su morada, aman a la Tierra;
en su corazón, aman lo que es profundo;
en relaciones personales, aman la bondad y la amabilidad;
en sus palabras, aman la verdad;
en el Mundo, aman la paz;
​en asuntos personales, aman lo que es correcto;
en la acción, aman el momento oportuno.
Es porque no compiten con otr@s
​que van más allá del reproche del Mundo.

–Lao Tsé en el Tao Te King Capítulo 8


The best, like water,
Benefit all and do not compete.
They dwell in lowly spots that everyone else scorns.
Putting others before themselves,
They find themselves in the foremost place
And come very near to the Tao.
In their dwelling, they love the Earth;
In their heart, they love what is deep;
In personal relationships, they love kindness;
In their words, they love truth.
In the world, they love peace.
In personal affairs, they love what is right.
In action, they love choosing the right time.
It is because they do not compete with others
That they are beyond the reproach of the world.

–Lao Tzu in Tao Te Ching Chapter 8
