Tao Te Ching Chapter 78-6 Everyone = You
Everyone in the world under the sky knows them. (Ch.78)
Why do I ask you not to resist?
Why do I ask you not to resist even the desire of resistance.
Because I want you to understand everyone is "you".
What Lao Tzu teaches us here is the same.
Everyone knows everything because everything is one.
All the beings, including people, animals, other living (and non-living) beings, and even your own thoughts and feelings, are one.
Since everything is one, everyone knows all, and "you" know all, too.
"You" are the one who projects all.
So, why do you have to hide something from someone?
Why do you have to fight for the disclosure of information?
Well, but if you cannot help it, don't resist the temptation to fight for or against something.
Just remember knowledge is shared by all.
