More Lao Tzu

[69] There is no greater catastrophe than underestimating the enemy.

[8] The highest good is like water

Water gives life to the ten thousand things and does not strive.

It flows in places men reject and so is like the Tao.

[34] The great Tao flows everywhere, both to the left and to the right…

Ben Carson, too, expresses centrist politics as the two wings of the eagle.-CLC!

[25]…flows…

Therefore, “Tao is great;

Heaven is great;

Earth is great;

The King is also great.”

These are the four great powers of the universe,

And the King is one of them.

Man follows earth.

Earth follows heaven.

Heaven follows the Tao.

Tao follows what is natural.

[5] …The space between heaven and earth is like a bellows…

[62] Why does everyone like the Tao so much?

Isn’t it because you find what you seek and are forgiven when you sin?

Translated by Guy-Fu Feng and Jane English. Preface:

…according to ancient legend, as he was riding off into the desert to die-sick at hearty at the ways of men-he was persuaded by a gatekeeper in Northwestern China to write down his teaching for posterity.

It is not said whether the action of the gatekeeper saved his life (604-531 B.C.).

This was the time of the Babylonian exile of the Jews and the beginnings of Greek philosophy with Thales. The rest of the “White” guys were still, like eating their relatives!

  1. 13 Jesus answered and said unto her, Whosoever drinketh of this water shall thirst again:

    14 But whosoever drinketh of the water that I shall give him shall never thirst; but the water that I shall give him shall be in him a well of water springing up into everlasting life.
