Chapter 56 follows the principles of equality. We asked Master Yuan Xiu Gang about the deeper meaning.

谷神不死 是謂玄牝

“The valley spirit does not die, it is called the invisible mother.”

綿綿若存 用之不勤

“Formless but appears to exist, use it and it never depletes.”

We held the interview completely in Chinese and then constructed a translation with our translator who is a native speaker and Coach in our academy and follower of the Daoist doctrines for many years.
