THE WAY OF THE ACTION OF THE SOUL
A New Translation of the Tao Te Ching
by Alan Sheets and Barbara Tovey

SoulType 6, Chapter 69


From using force a saying emerges: I dare not act like a ruler, but instead I must act like a guest.
Do not venture an inch when you can withdraw a foot.
This is called progress without progressing.

Seize without seizing.
Apply force to no opponent.
Manage without weapons.

There is no greater calamity than disregarding the enemy.
Disregarding your enemy brings you close to the death of what you treasure.

When two armies meet and inspect each other, grieve for the winner!
