Tao Te Ching Meditation - Chapter 36:"There will be an answer: let it be, let it be."


36.1 Should you want to contain something,
       you must first deliberately let it expand.
       Should you want to weaken something,
       you must deliberately let it grow strong.
       Should you want to eliminate something,
       you must deliberately allow it to flourish.
36.2 This is called subtle illumination.
       Flexible and yielding overcome adamant coerciveness.
36.3 Fish shouldn't be taken from the depths;
       the effective tools of the nation shouldn't be shown to others.
