Who uses well his light,In this instance, I simply will share how another translator -- Jonathan Star -- renders these lines.
Reverting to its (source so) bright, Will from his body ward all blight,
~ James Legge translation, from The Sacred Books of the East, 1891 ~
Using the outer light, return to insight,
And in this way be saved from harm.
~ Gia-fu Feng and Jane English translation, published by Vintage Books, 1989 ~
Utilize the light
Return to the clarity
Leaving no disasters for the self
~ Derek Lin translation, from Tao Te Ching: Annotated & Explained, published by SkyLight Paths, 2006 ~
Use that strength
to hang on to your insight,
and you will always be at peace.
~ Ron Hogan rendition, from Beatrice.com, 2004 ~
