Chapter 56 – Those who know don’t talk. Those who talk don’t know.


Those who know don’t talk. Those who talk don’t know.

Block the passage Bolt the gate
Blunt the sharp Untie the knot
Blend with the light Become one with the dust – This is called original unity.

It can’t be embraced It can’t be escaped, It can’t be helped It can’t be harmed, It can’t be exalted It can’t be despised,

Therefore it is revered under Heaven.
