Tao of Yeshua: Chapter 29

Some people feel forced to take all things and control them.
I have seen it cannot be done.
All things are set apart and thus contained together.
People cannot rule them.
He who acts, spoils things. He who grabs, loses things.
For things naturally rush ahead, then lag behind;
Pant warmly, then breathe coolly;
Become strong, then become feeble;
Start afresh, then decay.
Therefore the Saint accepts things as they are. He avoids forcing things. He avoids extremes.

Let Adonai own the world.
Learn to enjoy how he gives and takes away.
Help him with his plans, which are better than our own plans.
