Tao Te Ching - Chapter: 53
- The great Way is easy, yet people prefer the side paths.
Be aware when things are out of balance.
Stay centered within the Tao.
When rich speculators prosper While farmers lose their land;
when government officials spend money on weapons instead of cures;
when the upper class is extravagant and irresponsible
while the poor have nowhere to turnall this is robbery and chaos.
It is not in keeping with the Tao.
