I feel like in today’s world and in the current economy, Chapter LXXIII wouldn’t get a raise or get promoted. I see people tirelessly working in quiet doing a great job, and they are consistently looked over. While the pains in the asses screaming, “Look at me! I’m working so hard!” are getting all the kudos.
The Tao is always at ease.
It overcomes without competing,
answers without speaking a word,
arrives without being summoned,
accomplishes without a plan.
Its net covers the whole universe.
And though its meshes are wide,
it doesn’t let a thing slip through.
