Chapter 35: Humane Ethics

Appear to grasp the immense, and all of creation will turn towards you.
They are drawn toward without needing to cause harm, but instead bring the highest form of peace.

Music and cakes as bait attract guests to stop, but:
To speak of the Tao seems insipid and tasteless.
To inspect it, the Tao seems inadequate to view,
To listen to it, there is nothing worth hearing.
To use it seems simply not worth trying,
since it’s already in use everywhere, always anyway.
