DAILY SELECTIONS FROM LAO-TZU’S TAO TE CHING — AUGUST 22, 2019

When they lose their sense of awe,
people turn to religion.
When they no longer trust themselves,
they begin to depend upon authority.

Therefore the Master steps back
so that people won’t be confused.
He teaches without teaching,
so that people will have nothing to learn.

-Lao-tzu- (Tao Te Ching, verse 72, interpretation by Stephen Mitchell)
