My translation of chapter 37 of Tao Te Ching
Tao can achieve any result
with no visible trace of action.
If lords and emperors can keep to this principle,
Every problem will be solved as if by itself
When aggressiveness tries to bud
I dissolve it with unnamable simplicity.
With unnamable simplicity
There will be no more desire.
With no desire
Everything will prosper without intervention.
Paul's comment: In our modern society in which each individual's (subjective) rights are emphasized and respected, what better way to change the behaviors of our neighbors than Tao's way of not letting them know we are trying (our best!) to change them? A good lesson for parents, employers, politicians, and everybody else.
