《道化》

Library Resources
1 道化:
道生一,道使所生者一也。一生二,一生陰與陽也。二生三,陰陽生和、清、濁三氣,分為天地人也。三生萬物。天地人共生萬物也,天施地化,人長養之也。萬物負陰而抱陽,萬物無不負陰而向陽,迴心而就日。沖氣以為和。萬物中皆有元氣,得以和柔,若胸中有藏,骨中有髓,草木中有空虛與氣通,故得久生也。人之所惡,惟孤﹑寡﹑不穀,而王公以為稱。孤寡不轂者,不祥之名,而王公以為稱者,處謙卑,法空虛和柔。故物或損之而益,引之不得,推之必還。或益之而損。夫增高者志崩,貪富者致患。人之所教,謂眾人所教,去弱為強,去柔為剛。我亦教之。言我教眾人,使去強為弱,去柔為剛。強梁者不得其死,強粱者,謂不信玄妙,背叛道德,不從經教,尚勢任力也。不得其死者,為天命所絕,兵刃所伐,王法所殺,不得以壽命死。吾將以為教父。父,使也。老子以強梁之人為教,誡之始也。
