Tao Te Ching Chapter 69 Enemy (playlist)

No disaster is as big as underestimating the enemy.

If you underestimate the enemy, you have almost lost my treasures.

(from this chapter)


"What is the sound of one hand?"
(Zen Buddhist Hakuin's Koan, ☞See The sound without a sound 14-4)


Can we advance without advancing?


Act no act. 為無為 Can we really act without acting?

(☞See Act without acting 3-7)


What is the solution to this imaginary isolation?

Lao Tzu says: "Therefore, if two facing armies look like each other, the one sending Love wins". (69-7)

That is to say, "Send Love, and you will win against the isolation".
