The skilful traveller leaves no traces of his wheels or footsteps;
the skilful speaker says nothing that can be found fault with or blamed;
the skilful reckoner uses no tallies; the skilful closer needs no bolts or bars, while to open what he has shut will be impossible;
the skilful binder uses no strings or knots, while to unloose what he has bound will be impossible.
In the same way the sage is always skilful at saving men, and so he does not cast away any man; he is always skilful at saving things, and so he does not cast away anything.
This is called ‘Hiding the light of his procedure.’

Someone asked the legendary Bruce Lee about his style of fighting , so he replied ….. Fighting without fFghting , even in Holy Gita Lord Krishna explains the action in non-action and non-action in action .
There is a saying that ” Those who know does not tell and those who tell does not know “
This is the way of Tao where Action and Non-Action happens in Harmony , this is the Union of Ying and Yang in every aspect of life .

The disciples were absorbed in a discussion of Lao-tzu’s dictum:
“Those who know, do not say;
Those who say, do not know.”

Thursday is a day to take a dip in the ocean of wisdom and Chinese enlightened master Lao Tzu is one such ocean …..
what I like about writing of Lao Tzu is essence of wisdom …… in few words of silence one has fragrance of timeless understanding ……as we are contemplating on verse 17 that is on rulers and qualities of a ruler ……
