Fight the Amoral Fight

insight

If I had even the tiniest
grain of insight,


     I should live in accordance with

     the subtle Way of the universe;

     my only fear would be to stray from it.

The Integral Way of the
universe


     is very smooth and straight,

     yet people’s minds prefer devious bypaths.

 

The courts are polished
and decorated,


     while the fields are untilled,

     and the granaries are empty.

People wear fine clothes

     to adorn their external appearance.

They carry sharp swords
at their sides


     and worship might rather than righteousness.

They know only to make
merry


     by indulging in food and drink.

They crave to possess
more riches


     than they could ever use.

 

This is the committing of robbery

and is not the Universal Integral Way of natural
life.

I'm playing with something I know nothing about... as usual.
No, not Tao - HTML ;)
Now, how do I get this back to normal size? LOL
I'll get back to it tomorrow, perhaps...

When bad men combine, the good must associate; else they will fall one by one, an unpitied sacrifice in a contemptible struggle. - Edmund Burke
