    The Spirit
    has an impregnable tower
    wich no danger can disturb
    as long as the tower is guarded
    by the invisible Protector
    who acts unconsciously
    and whose actions go astray
    when they become deliberate
    reflexive and intentional.

    The unconscious
    and entire sincerity of Tao
    are disturbed by any effort
    at self-conscious demonstration.
    All such demonstrations are lies.
    When one displays himself
    in this amibiguous way
    the world storms in
    and imprisons him.
    He is no longer protected
    by the sincerity of Tao.

    Each new actis a new failure.
    If his acts are done in public,
    in broad daylight,
    he will be punished by men.
    If they are done in private and in secret,
    he will be punished by spirits.

    Let each one understand the meaning of sincerity
    and guard against display.

    He will be at peace
    with men and spirits
    and will act rightly, unseen,
    in his own solitude,
    in the tower of his spirit.
