- #67. The Tao is Practical
Many don’t understand the Tao.
And feel it’s impractical for the modern age.
For those that have looked inside themselves, The Tao is both understandable and practical.
When the Tao is put into practice,
The treasures become apparent.
The treasures are love, moderation, and yielding.
Love provides courage
And causes one to take healthy risks. It is victorious in attack
And impossible to defend.
Moderation ensures that You always have enough.
Yielding gives you peace of mind
And patience with friends and enemies.
If you have love for others, You are useful to the Tao.
From The Alchemist’s Tao Te Ching.
