Tao Te Ching Chapter 39-20 No jade
They don't want to be like jade. (Ch.39)
A: "Master Bonbon, if I meditate three hours a day, can I be a movie star?"
B: "That is not enough."
A: "Okey. I will meditate five hours a day. How about that?"
B: "There is something more important than meditation. All the stars make a generous donation to us. Then, we can invest in Treasury Bonds."
Do we really want to be a star?
Do we really want to shine like jade?
Lao Tzu discourages you from standing out.
You don't have to be brilliant.
