Tao Te Ching Chapter 69-7 Love wins
Therefore, if two facing armies look like each other, the one sending Love wins. (Ch.69)
What are "two facing armies"?
In Tao, everything is supposed to be one.
This is the source of all the problems: the two imaginary entities in the sole existence.
In your hologram, you have created the division between you and non-you, or Jiko 自己 yourself under your control and Tako 他己 yourself beyond your control.
You and non-you are the same hologram.
That's why Lao Tzu says:
"Two facing armies look like each other".
You and the rest of the world are not separated.
You just think they are.
What is the solution to this imaginary isolation?
Lao Tzu answers you:
"Send Love, and you will win against the isolation".
