Beyond the Rainbow

“all streams flow to the sea because it is lower than they are.
humility gives it its power.
if
you want to govern the people,
you must place yourself below them.
if
you want to lead the people,
you must learn how to follow them.”

Lao Tzu

(570-490 BC)

Beyond the Rainbow

Tao Te Ching: Chapter : 19 : Simplify

If we could abolish knowledge and wisdom
Then people would profit a hundredfold;

If we could abolish duty and justice
Then harmonious relationships would form;If we could abolish artifice and profit
Then waste and theft would disappear.Yet such remedies treat only symptoms
And so they are inadequate.People need personal remedies:
Reveal your naked self and embrace your original nature;Bind your self-interest and control your ambition;
Forget your habits and simplify your affairs.
