75



 Image result for 75
When rulers take so much so that they may feast
Their people go hungry
When rulers take action to serve their own interests
Their people are likely to become rebellious
When rulers take lives
So that their own lives are maintained
Their people no longer fear death

When people act without regard for their own lives
They overcome those who value only their own lives
Do not seek to fulfill your own agenda
Do not try to force people to do what
They do not want to do
Use wu-wei to overcome
Demanding your way only leads to strife
Be at peace with all by drifting along like leaf on flowing river
Seemingly aimless but successful in getting to its destination
