Yep, very close to what is taught in the Bible, but it falls short.
IJR never read it. Unfortunatly.
Simple and deep. Truthful and wise. Rereadable and timeless.
“Knowing others is intelligence; knowing yourself is true wisdom. Mastering others is strength; mastering yourself is true power. If you realize that you have enough, you are truly rich.” ~ Tao Te Ching quote
It’s an Interesting poem on a form of Daoism.
Very poignant and concise, was a great read and I took a lot away from it.
I thought it was so vague that you could make almost anything you liked of it. This in turn made me realise why it is popular with New Age types; and also got me wondering about the accuracy of translations. I bet that my understanding of it is very different to a Chinese person’s.
Like reading a collection of fortune cookies.
I enjoyed it, but to be honest if I had to choose between that and the Analects I would go with the Analects.
