Foreword


10.3137. The Way Of Tao.   AR AR

The effort of not doing.  You do nothing and everything happens by itself.  You must restrain any attempt to do, to judge, to desire, to change or to change.  The king sits on his throne and contemplates, but under his attentive gaze everything is done by itself.

Those who seek the truth are like moths flying to the fire.  Those who seek to lie are like drowned men with a stone around their necks, or fish jumping out of the water.  The impartial is like one who has built a fire and is cooking fish stew in a pot.

Banging on someone's door is a stupid idea.  Happiness is the Tao, that is, the movement towards one's goal, one's doors and one's roads.  Your path will not resist you, it will pull you, beckon to him like a magnet.

5.449. Superconductor.   AR AR

Directing all your will to the realization of the intention, it is as if you are building drainage channels from an overflowing reservoir, redirecting energy to the right direction. Willpower is weak, but the power of energy flow in such channels is huge. Energy channels, willpower rushing to the intended purpose, generate conductivity.

It is not difficult to follow the path, the path is like falling into an abyss.  It is difficult to step into the abyss.  It's hard to let go of affection.  It is difficult to find the wisdom and courage not to die of fear and despondency during the endless fall into the abyss.

But  they  are  rather  like  something  showing  the  direction,  like  a  pole-star. 
When  you  follow  the  sun,  it's  silly  to  aim  at  touching  it  with  hands.

There  are  two  ways  of  thinking,  two  types  of  understanding  the  world: 

•        Logical  thinking  -  logic  typical  of  male  nature. 
•        Mystically  sensual  understanding  of  the  world  -  female  way  of  thinking. 

It's  a  very  disputable  issue  of  what  way  of  thinking  is  better.  Men  think  that  it's  logic  that  rules  the  world.  While  women  say  that  the  world  is  mystically  irrational. 

But  we  know  as  we  remember  that  the  truth  in  this  world  is  always  hidden  in  balance.  In  the  blend  of  Yin  and  Yang,  Chaos  and  Order,  Black  and  White.  It  should  be  said  that  both  types  of  understanding  of  the  world  -  logic  and  feelings  -  taken  separately  are  unable  to  see  the  real  world  view.  Only  after  having  become  united  and  formed  some  symbiosis  to  use  both  of  the  types  of  understanding,  people  can  see  the  world  as  it  is.  The  world  where  both  Rational  and  IRrational  laws  take  place. 

Our  world,  our  reality  is  rational  and  irrational  at  the  same  time.  Some  things  happen  in  it  according  to  logical  laws  and  have  cause-and-effect  connections,  while  other  events  and  phenomena  are  caused  by  its  mystical  sensual  nature.  Really,  besides  logic  there  exist  luck,  fortune,  karma…  There's  hardly  anyone  who  would  deny  it  not  to  jinx  it. 

Everyone  had  periods  in  life  called  a  train  of  misfortunes  and  no  logic  would  explain  that.  And  everyone  had  moments  when  a  run  of  good  luck  would  eclipse  anything.  Why  can't  it  be  so?  And  what  could  not  happen  under  no  circumstances,  sometimes  became  real.
