Sometimes no answer is a big answer. That’s on me. It’s impossible to find good talent these days. Sometimes we go up against someone that seems weak but is in reality suprisingly strong, and you can’t win.
That’s life. This juxtaposition is the origin of ethics. 3000 years of teaching…


Something mysteriously formed,
Born before heaven and earth.
In the silence and the void,
Standing alone and unchanging,
Ever present and in motion.
Perhaps it is the mother of ten thousand things.
I do not know its name.
Call it Tao.
For lack of a better word, I call it great.

Being great, it flows.
It flows far away.
Having gone far, it returns.

Therefore, “Tao is great;
Heaven is great;
Earth is great;
The king is also great.”
These are the four great powers
of the universe,
And the king is one of them.

Man follows the earth.
Earth follows heaven.
Heaven follows the Tao.
Tao follows what is natural.
