“Knowing others is wisdom, knowing yourself is Enlightenment.” ~ Lao Tzu.
“Victorious warriors win first and then go to war, while defeated warriors go to war first and then seek to win.” ~ Sun Tzu.
The Tao (The Way to Enlightenment/The Source of Everything) in its unmatched wisdom says, “But knowing harmony creates abstraction, and following abstraction creates ritual. Exceeding nature creates calamity, and controlling nature creates violence.” This says, ‘Knowing harmony, living and experiencing a wise and peaceful mind, creates the deep analysis and study of profound ideas, profound philosophies for a better life; and so, following this abstraction or greater philosophies, creates superior habits and thus ways of the superior mind.’
Then it explains, ‘Trying to force nature, and everything that happens in your life, brings chaos into your life; and controlling nature and outside events, creates an agitated mind and all violence.’
You must clear your thoughts from all agitation whenever you see obstacles and people wanting to hurt you in any way; for only with a clear and pure mind you may think straight and arrive to a solution or to an inspiring idea. And when you need to become firm and fearless, fight people’s arguments and life challenges head on, then be also calm and confident because the energy of your own mind, of peace and harmony, will create your reality, will dictate the outcome of your experience.
The fool initiates quarrels and rebellions because he is full of fear/rage and hate, and his mind does not think clearly due to an inferior understanding/an inferior mind; however, the wise and superior mind of the sage remains peaceful and confident because nothing from the outside moves him, he is in constant meditation and harmony with his true self.
The sage is the one who really holds the power.
