Tao Te Ching Chapter 56-1 Don't say
One who knows does not say. (Ch.56)
You don't have to be convincing.
You'd better not be talkative.
This sentence seems like a good old teaching of "Silence is golden".
But there is a deeper meaning behind the simplicity of the words.
Lao Tzu wants to say that, if you know how Tao functions, you dare not try to speak out and influence what is going on in front of you.
You just leave it as it is.
That's the first step to be one with Tao.
