I’m thinking…

…about Tao

 

Govern a nation as you would fry a small fish

When Tao is present in the empire

dark spirits lose their power

It’s not that they have no power

it’s that their power can’t harm anyone

When Tao is present

the people enjoy the blessings of Heaven

They find unity

They find peace

What’s this about spirits doing harm?

The Sage is approaching and they are rushing in to sweep his path!

 

 

…Verse 60 from “Tao Te Ching”
