Ocean is the greatest,

All rivers fall into the ocean because the ocean is at the bottom.

Thus the most humble are the the most powerful.

Deciple: Who will enter the kingdom of heaven first?

Jesus: those who are first will be the last, those who are last will be the first.

My translation: those who are humble will get to heaven first, those elbowing their way to be first will be the last

Sharpen the knife too much and it will become blunt.

Claim wealth and titles, and disaster will follow.

Better to stop short, then to fill to the brim.

Retire when the work is done,

This is the way of heaven.

Lao tzu

Yield and overcome,

Bend and be straight,

Empty and be full,

Have little and gain,

Have much and be confused.

 

Therefore the wise embrice the One and set an example to all. 

Not putting on a display, they shine forth.

Not justifying themselfs, they are distinguished.

Not boasting, they receive recognition.

Not bragging, they never falter.

They never quarrel, so no one quarrels with them.

Therefore the ancients say. "Yield and overcome".

Is that an empty saying?

Be really whole, and all things will come to you. 

Lao tzu

Christians don't like paganism and deity worship but their religion is exacly that.

Christ worship is no different than deity worship. It's the same science and method. To tune in and absorb a higher energy and become one with that energy is the essence of christianity and deity worship that christians are so against of. I find this to be very funny and paradoxical.

The moment you try to be natural, you become unnatural.

The moment you try to be smart, you become dumb.

When you realize everything you do is dumb, you become smart.
