七十三

勇于敢則殺,
勇于不敢則活。
此兩者,
或利或害。
天之所惡,
孰知其故? 是以聖人猶難之。
天之道,
不爭而善勝,
不言而善應,
不召而自來,
繕然 而善謀。
天網恢恢,
疏而不失。

The Tao is always at ease.
It overcomes without competing,
answers without speaking a word,
arrives without being summoned,
accomplishes without a plan.

Its net covers the whole universe.
And though its meshes are wide,
it doesn't let a thing slip through.
