New Thought Te 81 - explores the concept of unlimited supply and news versus infotainment
Tao # 81 / Unlimited Supply
Real journalism is not elegant.
Beautiful propaganda is not news.
The sage has no need for credentials,
since he has nothing to prove.
Those with something to prove are not wise
though their walls may be plastered with degrees.
Lacking in compassion they often live lies
selling false teachings for fees.
The sage does not hold back or hoard,
he freely shares his wisdom
and thus gains your support.
He joyfully tithes and thus has unlimited supply.
earning our trust with a twinkling eye
sharing himself, thus you know why
he is always happy.
Just as the universe has unlimited space and energy,
the master benefits all and contends with no one.
