Tao Te Ching Chapter 77-8 Rich man's excess
It reduces what is already lacking and gives it to those who have excess. (Ch.77)
A: "I am rich, but I wanna be richer. What do I have to do, Master Bonbon?"
B: "Donate your money to our organization. The more you donate, the richer you get."
A: "Don't be stupid, Master Bonbon. The more I donate, the richer YOU get."
Some people say:
"He is excessively rich. He's got to use his money to save the world!"
All right, all right.
I understand, but let Tao do its job of "bending the bow". (☞See Bend a bow 77-1)
The more upset you are, the more resistance you create.
Especially, be careful of the media.
No matter what they say, they are asking you only one thing.
They are asking you to emit more Love as the other elements in your hologram do.
