Everything has a beginning, and
At the beginning we may know its source.
When its source is known,
We may know the original motivation of the thing.
When relating to this thing, always
Interact with it in terms of its original motivation, for,
To the very end, that motivation
Will be imbedded in that thing.

Close your mouth and hide your source,
And your essence will never be attacked.
Speak out and expose your self,
And your essence will never be safe.

Being seen as small permits greatness.
Being known as tender permits strength.
When you use this light, you are enlightened.
Let your essence become attracted to the void;
Then you become unified with the eternal.
