The Path to Peace

“The Tao never does anything, yet through it all things are done.  If powerful men and women could center themselves in it, the whole world would be transformed, by itself, in its natural rhythms.  People would be content with their simple every day lives,  and harmony, and free of desire.  When there is no desire, all things are at peace.”

Tao te Ching verse 37
