|Way gives birth to it,
|Virtue rears it,
|Materiality shapes it,
|Activity perfects it.
|Therefore, there are none of the myriad things who do not venerate the Way or esteem its virtue.
|This veneration of the Way and esteeming of its virtue is something they do naturally, without being forced.
|Therefore, the Way gives birth.
|Its virtue rears, develops, raises, adjusts and disciplines,
|Nourishes, covers and protects,
|Produces but does not possess,
|Acts without expectation,
|Leads without forcing.
|This is called “Mysterious Virtue.”
