Upon a steep slope
A small stream rushes
To join the waters of a great lake
Gaining strength and chaos
With its progress

If the lake receives
With a narrow bed
The flow is constricted
Chaos is increased

With a wide bed and still waters
Barely a ripple is felt
As one the stream and the lake
Grow in strength; only chaos is lost

People naturally seek out a great nation
A nation that nurtures becomes stronger

Yang naturally seeks out yin
Yang need only flow
Yin need only open to receive

          
Together they are stronger
only chaos is lost
