Tao Te Ching Chapter 28-15 The greatest control
Therefore, the greatest control doesn't split any. (Ch.28)
Tao is "the greatest control".
It cannot be divided, so don't split any.
Since everything is one, the idea of dividing something does not suit Tao.
So, don't judge. Don't tell good from evil.
Do nothing and accept all.
This is the greatest control of all.
Why don't we give Tao a bit more credit.
Tao knows. Tao flows.
The rest is a nice steak sauce to stimulate your appetite.

-Let's go to Matsuyama, Japan. They have fantastic Dogo Onsen the hot spa. Botchan, probably one of the best known characters in Japanese literature, adores to take a bath there. The word "Botchan" could be translated as a naive rich kid in English. Because of his naivety the Japanese adore him. A onsen and a young man gives another aspect of the hot spring tradition than a geisha and a bath. Somehow it touches the heartstrings of the nation of onsen lovers, too.
