20. Abandon learning and there will be no sorrow.
How much difference is there between ‘yes sir,’ and ‘of course not’?
How much difference is there between ‘good’ and ‘evil’?
What people dread, do not fail to dread.
But, alas, how confused, and the end is not yet.
The multitude are merry, as though feasting on a day of sacrifice,
Or like ascending a tower at springtime.

I alone am inert, showing no sign (of desires).
Like an infant that has not yet smiled.
Wearied, indeed, I seem to be without a home.
The multitude all possess more than enough,
I alone seem to have lost all.
Mine is indeed the mind of an ignorant mind.
Indiscriminate and dull!
Common folks are indeed brilliant;
I alone see to be in the dark.

Common folks see differences and are clear-cut;
I alone make no distinctions.
I seem drifting as the sea;
Like the wind blowing about, seemingly without destination.
The multitude all have a purpose;
I alone seem to be stubborn and rustic.
I alone differ from others,
And value drawing sustenance from Mother (Tao).

the shaman should move the pipe in the same manner until the mouthpiece again points towards the west, and say: ‘circling, I complete the four quarters and the time.’ He should do this because the four winds are the four quarters of the circle and mankind knows not where they may be or whence they may come and the pipe should be offered directly toward them. The four quarters embrace all that are in the world and all that are in the sky. Therefore, by circling the pipe, the offering is made to all the gods. The circle is the symbol of time, for the day time, the night time, and the moon time are circles above the world, and the year time is a circle around the border of the world. Therefore the lighted pipe moved in the complete circle is an offering to all the times.
