Chapter 65

  • The ancient sage kings used the Tao to help people.
  • Instead of ruling through clever tricks, they ruled with straightforward honesty.
  • This encouraged the people to live with simplicity.
  • If you govern with craftiness, then the people will become crafty.
  • Governing craftily is the same thing as robbing the country.
  • Living simply with the Tao is called the Mystic Virtue.
  • The Mystic Virtue is infinite and goes beyond material things.
  • It is the thing that connects all things.
