Daodejing 31

Weapons are instruments of death.
Therefore, living things hate them.

Followers of the way avoid
weapons except in direst
circumstance, preferring calm.

Avoid victory by force—

violence leads
only to violence.

Remember: a killer
is never trusted long.

Celebrate a victory
like a funeral.

  1. Yes, a victory over pain and struggle for some, and a joyful move forward on the path. But along the path before death, we can also take joy in the antics of adolescent squirrels and mule deerr practicing to be “grown ups” and the other simple beauty in the woods. There may be violence there, too, but only in the forever natural order of life.

  2. Adsense is actually a really great program for those who maintain blogs, as blogs get updated all the time and the Adsense possibilities are almost limitless.
    20 percent of customers have the potential to spend five times as much
    as they do currently A relatively small amount of marketing effort creates
    the majority of output. Any time you create new content or share
    new links on your website or blog, be sure to do so
    by diversifying all of the link and anchor text you
    implement, regardless of the market you represent
    or the industry you are working in.
