Greatest Wisdom

“Thus it is said:
The path into light seems dark,
the path forward seems to go back,
the direct path seems long,
true power seems weak…
the greatest love seems indifferent,
the greatest wisdom seems childish.”

Lao Tzu

(570-490 BC)

故 ﹔ 貴 

Legge’s Translation

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.’

ram0ram footnote :-

Earth is moving at 30 Kilometer per Scond yet there is no vibration in the glass filled with water , this is utlimate example of engineering .

someone asked the legendary Bruce Lee  about his style of fighting , so he replied ….. fighting without fighting , 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 .

“If you understand others you are smart.
If you understand yourself you are illuminated.
If you overcome others you are powerful.
If you overcome yourself you have strength.
If you know how to be satisfied you are rich.
If you can act with vigor, you have a will.
If you don’t lose your objectives you can be long-lasting.
If you die without loss, you are eternal.”

Lao Tzu
