Tao Te Ching Chapter 27-10 No bad man
A non-good man is the resources of a good one. (Ch.27)
Yesterday, we talked about "a good man is the teacher of a non-good one".
Please pay attention to the expression "non-good" man 不善人.
In the original of Tao Te Ching, it is not written as a "bad" man 悪人.
There is neither good nor bad in Tao.
Good is the source of non-good.
Non-good is the source of good.
It shows us the cycle of Yin and Yang.
It doesn't matter whether the hen or the egg comes first.
As long as it cycles, it is perfect.

-Hanzo on the left is Hanzo Itami in Goyokiba. Hanzo on the right is Hanzo Hattori in Kill Bill. The latter is not Hanzo the Ninja minister, but his descendent acted by Sonny Chiba (Shin'ichi Chiba), who played the great athlete cop in Key Hunter series. Since I was a kid, I have been wondering what a key hunter means.
