No-Self is True-Self
The man in whom Tao acts without impediment
Does not bother with his own interests
And does not despise others who do.
He does not struggle to make money
And does not make a virtue of poverty.
He goes his way without relying on others
And does not pride himself on walking alone.
While he does not follow the crowd
He won’t complain of those who do.
Rank and reward make no appeal to him;
Disgrace and shame do not deter him.
He is not always looking for right and wrong
Always deciding “Yes” and “No.”
The ancients said, therefore:
“The man of Tao remains unknown.
Perfect virtue produces nothing
‘No-Self’ Is ‘true-Self’
And the greatest man is Nobody”
— Chuang Tzu —
