Chapter 48. The trouble with knowledge
Somatic and non-somatic ache grows every day from pursuing knowledge.
But this ache is lessened every day by reaching Tao.
Do you shorten your effort constantly , until there is nothing left of it?
There is nothing that non-action could not accomplish.
Human could without any pain start to rule the world. But those who make much noise about ruling the world are not ready for it.
