What does Lao tzu says when he mentioned this? philosophy?

Nature uses few words:
when the gail blows, it will not last long;
when it rains hard, it lasts but a little while;
What causes these to happen? Heaven and Earth.
Why do we humans go on endlessly about little
when nature does much in a little time?
If you open yourself to the Tao,
you and Tao become one.
If you open yourself to Virtue,
then you can become virtuous.
If you open yourself to loss,
then you will become lost.
If you open yourself to the Tao,
the Tao will eagerly welcome you.
If you open yourself to virtue,
virtue will become a part of you.
If you open yourself to loss,
the lost are glad to see you.
“When you do not trust people,
people will become untrustworthy.”

  1. you sure he said that? he look at thing always in both side, no loss and no gain….why not put in this way…..when you do not trust people, because you know that part of them is different from you…the senses of danger tell you to stay away from danger!!!! when you trust people, because the part of them is same as you, that make you feel safe and willing to stay close with them…..
    please read carefully about laozhi….he is not a narrow minded person…in fact kongzi admit laozhi is higher level than him…very deep thought and able to see things clearly!!!

  2. People seek Love,
    This is what makes us great.
    People abide on the Earth,
    Earth abide in the Heavens,
    The Heavens abide in Love,
    Love abides in all.
    This what makes us one.—-TAO

  3. It sounds like the law of attraction to me. You can attract good or bad things to your life. I am not sure if Lao Tzu was accurate in that statement or being poetic or artistic and just stating an opinion.
    My interpretation of what that means is: When you open yourself or open your mind to some particular thing (good or bad), then that particular thing (good or bad) will be attracted into your life more frequently or you will move towards that particular thing (good or bad) in your life.
    When you don’t trust people, then you either attract untrustworthy people to yourself, or it may influence people to become, how you view them as, untrustworthy.

  4. The Master sees things as they are,
    without trying to control them.
    She lets them go their own way,
    and resides at the center of the circle.

  5. You become what you welcome into your life. You are what you accept. Live fully by simply accepting all things.
