Tao Te Ching Chapter 60-1 Boil fish

Today's Tao

Governing a big country is like boiling a little fish. (Ch.60)

A: "Master Bonbon, I am the president of a big country. What do I have to do to govern my country?"

B: "Boil your little fish."

Well said.

Well said, Master Bonbon.

But this gentleman is a president not a cook.

When you govern a big country, you treat it as if you were boiling a little fish.

What does it mean by "like boiling a little fish"?

If you stir the fish with a spoon, you may spoil it.

Therefore, if you govern a country, you do not meddle or intervene.

But, remember?

"A country" signifies your hologram.

So, the Today's Tao sentence means:

"Do not try to control your hologram".
