Blessed are the peacemakers: for they shall be called the children of God.War and conflict represent failures of the imagination. Often, they represent taking the easy road, not the correct road. When we learn to quell our desires and to embrace simplicity and humility, what would there be to fight about?
~ King James version ~
When the Tao is present in the universe,
The horses haul manure.
When the Tao is absent from the universe,
War horses are bred outside the city.
~ from Verse 46 of the Tao Te Ching ~
