Tuesday Tao- Utopia

80. Utopia

Let your community be small, with only a few people;
Keep tools in abundance, but do not depend upon them;

Appreciate your life and be content with your home;
Sail boats and ride horses, but don’t go too far;
Keep weapons and armor, but do not employ them;
Let everyone read and write,
Eat well and make beautiful things.

Live peacefully and delight in your own society;
Dwell within cock-crow of your neighbors,
But maintain your independence from them.

      1. Balance is something that’s so hard to achieve in a modern society. Our thrist for stuff means we’re just plundering and not putting back.
        The root cause of the problem is greed and money surprise, surprise.
