From Lao Tzu’s wisdom, the best way to rule a country is to help its people to cultivate ideal virtues. In this way, their potential can be developed to benefit everyone. From this verse we also can see the ideas of Lao Tzu are connected with God’s teaching, because all knowledge is from God.
There is no one who serves humanity and serves God who does not meet the pleasure of God.
Who meets the pleasure of God, we say is a person preparing for his next life.
Who is preparing for his next life, is the one endeavor to acquire ideal virtues.
Who is acquiring ideal virtues, will be able to overcome all situations and conquer his own challenges.
Who is capable of conquering his own challenges, will have extreme potential.
Who has unlimited capacity, will be able to sustain himself like a person who has his own dominion sustain his people.
Who is capable of sustaining himself, is the one who has the connection to the source of the fountain of life (Mother Earth).
Because his life is connected to the fountain of life, then his life won’t be withered and can last.
The one who finds the source of his life, we say he has established the root of his life.
Establishing the root of our life is the way to become eternal beings, acquire a long-lasting life.
