We visit the Oceanarium, the largest indoor aquarium in Europe. The way goes right by it. Our feet hurt while we watch the fish swim by.

Lao Tsu says:

“When people see some things as beautiful
Other things become ugly.
When people see some things as good,
Other things become bad.

Being and non-being create each other.
difficult and easy support each other.
Long and short defense each other.
High and low depend on each other.
Before and after follow each other.

Therefore the Master acts without doing anything
And teaches without saying anything.
Things arise and she lets them come.
Things disappear and she lets them go.

She has but doesn’t possess
Acts but doesn’t expect.
When her work is done, she forgets it.
That is why it lasts forever.”

How can the master act without doing and teach without saying anything? By being authentically tranquil and happy, she shows the Way to others.
