Tao Te Ching ~ The Highest Good

January 13, 2014

The highest good is like water.
Water gives life to ten thousand things
and does not strive.
It flows in places men reject and so it is like the Tao.

In dwelling, be close to the land.
In meditation, go deep in the heart.
In dealing with others, be gentle and kind.
In speech, be true.
In ruling, be just.
In daily life, be competent.
In action, be aware of the time and the season.

No fight: No blame.

Tao Te Ching, Verse 8

like water
Sincerely,
