A Traditional Poem Worth Reflection and Meditation

Tao of Power: The Use of Force

The finest Weapons can beinstruments of misfortune
And Thus contrary to Natural Law.
Those who possess the Tao Turn away from them
Evolved Leaders occupy and honour the left
Those who use weapons honour the right

Weapons are instruments of misfortune
That are used by the un-evolved.
When their use is unavoidable, the superior
Act with calm restraint.

Even when victorious, let there be no joy,
For such joy leads to contentment with slaughter
Those who are content with slaughter cannot
Find fulfilment in the world.
