tao te ching ☯️ chapter 67

brian browne walker blog 4 dec 2016 motherly love


under heaven says that

my Tao is great, but inconceivable. 

It is its very greatness that makes it inconceivable! 

If it could be conceived of, how small

it would be! 


I have three

treasures to hold and protect: 

The first is motherly love. The second

is economy. The third is daring

not to be first in the



With motherly

love one can be courageous. 

With economy one can be expansive. 

With humility one

can lead. 


To be

courageous without motherly love, 

To be expansive without practicing economy, 

To go to the front without humility — 

this is courting death. 


Venture with

love and you win the

battle. Defend with love and you are

invulnerable. Heaven’s secret is

motherly love.
