In a world of declining morals, respect and humility, the Dao remains a shining light of goodness and truth. Those who walk the path find peace and solitude in this quagmire of noise and degradation. It can seem to be a lonely venture at times, but the rewards are immeasurable. Those who are humble are ahead because they put others first. Those who are one with the Dao respect all things within the universe that the force created; and those who seek a higher road remain dry from the flood waters that carry many away.
