Tzu, Lao - You govern a kingdom by normal rules
Type of Spiritual Experience
A description of the experience
Lao Tzu - Tao Teh Ching
You govern a kingdom by normal rules
You fight a war by exceptional moves
But you win the world by letting alone.
How do I know that this is so?
By what is within me.
The more taboos and inhibitions there are in the world
The poorer the people become
The sharper the weapons the people possess
The greater confusion reigns in the realm
The more clever and crafty the men
The oftener strange things happen
The more articulate the laws and ordinances
The more robbers and thieves arise
