|Dr. Dyer's book is Change your Thoughts--Change Your Life: Living the Wisdom of the Tao.|
Today, I delve into verse 30 of the Tao Te Ching, specifically these portions:
One who would guide a leader of men in the uses of life
It is easy to think that one can force another to do something. Using violence, either in verbal or physical terms, seems like the best idea against violent people. Unfortunately, it backfires. Dr. Dyer explains that the children of those who fought in wars often retaliate. Their sense of revenge can be quite strong.
There are many terrible consequences to war. One is the famine. Just think of how the surface of the ground turns out after a war occurs. The earth is not useable. The people in that area suffer in poverty.
Thanks for reading today's post.
