Daily Tao - 60

Being a leader
is like cooking a small fish;
get right with Tao,
and it's quick and easy.

When you're in touch with Tao,
you don't need to worry
about misfortune.
You can't make it go away, of course,
but you can keep it
from harming other people.

Also, as a wise leader,
you cause no harm to others,
so people won't have to worry
about getting hurt,
and they'll take the opportunity
to do the right thing.

The Beatrice Tao.

Daily Tao - 60

Approach the universe with Tao, and evil will have no power."  Really?!?!!

The stoic says that evil cannot befall me
unless i let it,
because my mind is mine
and my body is not where i keep my self.

But how can i keep evil from affecting the universe
by my puny act of denial?
But by denying evil it's power
i don't make things worse.
I may look like a fool, but who cares.
