A Thought Toward Not - Thinking.

The distinction between the "wise person"
and "the Taoist sage"
appears only because the Taoist
(like almost all human beings)
prefers what she or he prefers.

A Taoist might say:
"A person in harmony with Tao
prefers to be weak."
A Christian might say:
"It is only when i am weak
that i am strong."
The same indescribable thought
expressed in different inadequate words.
But i think i catch their drift.

Strength calls for defense. Weakness calls for work that won't lead to glory
