The best virtue is like water

The best virtue is like water

              For hundreds of years, the total number of Western translations of The Tao Te Ching has reached nearly 500, involving 17 European languages. On the circulation of world cultural classics translated into foreign languages, the Bible ranks first, and the Tao Te Ching is ranked second.

I’m specially like the chapter eighth .

The greatest kindness is like the water , it’s infinity,

It gives itself to all things without distinction or judgment

and settles into the lowest places without deliberation.

The greatest kindness is like the water , it’s infinity,

It gives itself to all things without distinction or judgment

and settles into the lowest places without deliberation.

In dwelling, live in harmony with the land.

In meditation, remember your oneness with the infinite.

In dealing with others, do not judge.

In communicating, relate the truth.

In governing, be fair.

In daily life, be in harmony with all things and at peace with all people.

In action, be mindful that there is a time and a season for all things.

Avoid judging and its legacy contention and flow in the peace and harmony of the oneness of humanity.

 

            The best virtue is like water: water is good at nourishing all things and not contending for merit. It can live and work in an environment that everyone hates, so it is close to the realm of Tao.

Keeping the good land where no one is coming to fight, no one is fighting.The state of mind is as clear and quiet as the abyss; the behavior is full of love for all beings because of the inner peace. The words are pure and innocent, not seeking fame and fortune, and the natural faith is outstanding; Because of selflessness and unwillingness, and not deliberately pursuing meritorious deeds, we can follow the natural rule of governance.

           After removing all selfish desires, seeking fame and fortune, and making great contributions, we can truly focus all our efforts on doing things, and thus do everything; Acting will also see the timing of what should really be launched, and be good at grasping the opportunity. Because he did not deliberately fight for power and profit, he did not come from the inner worries, depression, and the worries and worries from the outside world.
