Tao Te #38 ~ Power
Ф

True Power does not emphasize its strength
thus demonstrating true puissance
False power emphasizes its existence
thus lacking real strength

True Power does nothing
having no motive to accomplish
false power abides
waiting for a certain moment
to strike, doing nothing

Those who follow the way
do not put themselves above the law
They strive with willing hands
to lead others along the way

When they lose their way
they strive toward goodness
when they lose goodness
they try to be kind
when they lose kindness
they strive for justice
and when justice is lost
they strive to perform
legal forms
rituals to reassure themselves
of their patriotism
and loyalty
spouting opinions
watering the flowers
of ignorance

Thus the wise
abide within DivineUnity
living within the seed of truth
casting the shell away
living within the fruit
letting go of the unecessary
retaining the heart


Let us find the shades of grey and allow the light to shine today!

What can this teach us?


What does true Power not do

What is this power, from where does it come

False power can show itself through which type of thought

What is the movement of True Power
