The Tao is Practical, Not Striving

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.

A Great Warrior Does Not Seek War
A great warrior does not seek war.
A great fighter remains calm in the battle. A great winner does not flaunt his victory. A great leader lifts up the people.
This is the virtue of not striving. This is how to lead people.
This is the union of man and Tao.
