“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.”

good and honest

.

Treat those who are good with goodness, and also treat those who are not good with goodness. Thus goodness is attained. Be honest to those who are honest, and be also honest to those who are not honest. Thus honesty is attained.

I like these teachings; the Tao Te Ching speaks to everybody on different levels. The book is felt rather than understood. Empty yourself and let the mind be still. This is the way that opens onto the mystery of the empty vessel that is used but that is never filled. Love the world as your own self and then you can truly care for all things.

I haven’t worked out all yet of my self-sabotage; reading of Tao passages is definitely helpful. Sometimes, I tend to be philosophical to have no action. Usually though, I like to immerse myself in Tao passages for the reason of relaxing and to enjoy being. Isn’t that action?
