What Do You Value Most? Thanksgiving 2022

by on November 23, 2022
When these are no longer valued as essentials for the common good, society is lost. I'm thankful for the eight things to aspire to listed at the bottom of the right-hand column of the main blog page: integrity austerity restraint humility responsibility patience sacrifice thrift When these are no longer valued as essentials for the common good, society is lost. These aspirations remind of Chapter 58 of the Tao Te Ching: When the country is governed through simplicity and leniency, The people are genuine and honest. When the country is governed through harshness and sharp investigation, The people are more deceitful and dishonest. And Chapter 9: To hold things and to be proud of them is not as good as not to have them, Because if one insists on an extreme, that extreme will not dwell long. When a room is full of precious things, one will never be able to preserve them. When one is wealthy, high ranking, and proud of himself, he invites misfortune.
