don’t try to escape from the movements of the world

read ye of the magnificent El Negro Matapacos

 

Don’t try to 

escape from the movements of the 

world. Remain in the midst of everything, 

focused into the empty space 

at the center of 

your self. 

 
Pouring your 

whole being there without pause, 

alert, quietly smiling, you detach from clamor

and chaos and become independent and

free. From here you can

teach yourself 

everything.

he who knows himself need not fear

“we’ve finally arrived at the long-feared crisis & unraveling”

 

He

who knows

the opponent and

knows himself need not fear in

a hundred battles. He who knows only

himself and not the opponent will lose

one for each that he wins. He who

knows neither will

fail every

time.

devotion to truth enables a revolution

beautiful trouble: a toolbox for revolution

 
The hexagram Ko announces the arrival of a time of revolution. A set of conditions, internal or external or both, is ready to pass away in favor of a more beneficial situation. What enables this transformation is your conscious and vigorous adherence to correct thought and behavior.

No revolution in outer things is possible without a prior revolution in one’s inner way of being. Whatever change you aspire to in your affairs must be preceded by a change in heart, and active deepening and strengthening of your resolve to meet every event with equanimity, detachment, and innocent goodwill. When this spiritual poise is achieved within, magnificent things are possible without.

The revolutions of others are enabled also when we refine the fire of goodness and truth inside ourselves. Sincere commitment to higher things travels outward in powerful waves from the superior person, and all those around are affected by this. Indisputably, to lead one’s inner self to truth and peace is to lead the outer world to truth and peace. A beneficial revolution is assured to one who takes this path now.

the soft overcomes the hard


 

Nothing

under heaven is as

soft and yielding as water.

Yet for attacking the hard and

strong, nothing can

compare with

it.
 
 
The weak

overcomes the strong.

The soft overcomes the hard.

Everyone knows this, but none

have the ability to

practice it.
 
 
Therefore

the sage says: one who

accepts the dung of the nation

becomes the master of soil and sustenance.

One who deals with the evils of the

nation becomes king under

heaven.
 
 
True words seem paradoxical.

worst of all is a leader who is despised


 

The

best leader is one

whose existence is barely known.

Next best is one who is loved and praised.

After that, one who is feared. Worst

of all is a leader who is

despised.

 

If you

fail to trust people,

you won’t inspire their trust.

Therefore, guide others by quietly

relying on Tao. Then, when the

work is done, the people can

say, “We did this

ourselves.”

Chapter 17
