Tao Te Ching (Middle) “With great resentment, there must be more than resentment, can it be considered good?””Big grudge” refers to a deep and significant grudge between people, and “residual grudge” refers to a grudge that is difficult to eliminate and builds up in the heart over time.How did the grievance arise?In the preceding chapter, we have already analyzed the characteristics of Lao Zi’s era. At that time, the rulers were willing to indulge in success. They were willing to use force in order to satisfy their personal desires and launch large-scale annexation wars, resulting in the displacement of the people.They even collected a large amount of taxes from the people, so that the people suffered and were overwhelmed. In this way, the contradictions between the rulers and the people intensified and the people complained.In order to stabilize the hearts of the people, the rulers wanted to eliminate the “great hatred” through reconciliation, which is called “great hatred”.What will be the result of the feud?Lao-tzu thought, “With great resentment, there will be more resentment.” Why would there be “more resentment”?This is because the contradiction between the ruler and the people has reached an irreconcilable point. In order to completely eliminate the “residual resentment”, the ruler has to give up his own selfish thoughts, restrain his own desires, and free himself from the pursuit of personal interests.No matter how hard they try, it will be impossible to remove the “residual resentment” from the minds of the people if the rulers continue to harm the interests of the people to satisfy their own desires.It is impossible for a man to do everything well, because if he can make peace with the big ones, the small ones will become the big ones again.”Can think of good, the sage holds the contract, but not the responsibility of others.” Therefore, the sage does not require the perfection of the world, it is impossible.Therefore, the ancient sages did not require that the world be free of complaint, and that everyone be free of complaint.”Ann” is a state of stability and peace.A kind of serenity and detachment possessed by a man of deep moral restraint.It is a peaceful and diluted state of mind that does not quarrel with others for the short and long of the day and cares about worldly fame and fortune, which is also the basis of “kindness”.From “peace of mind” to “peace of mind”;From “safety” and “joy of its way”;”Peace” for the people leads to “peace” for the whole world.That’s why Ann can be good.”It is the sage who holds the covenant, not the man.Where there is a Descher, there is no descher.”The “left deed” is the left half of the bond, which is owned by the creditor and is the document by which the creditor claims the debt from the debtor.”Virtuous” means virtuous people, they are the subject of morality, are consciously follow morality and can follow the flow of good people.”Che” refers to an ancient tax, here extended to a one-time payment of debts with interest.If the debtor is unable to pay his debts, he is deprived of his liberty and all his property is confiscated.In this sentence, Lao Tzu again pointed out the difference between “virtuous” and “virtuous” by referring to the behavior of the sage. Lao Said that “virtuous” rulers collected taxes according to the contract of the contract, while “virtuous” rulers collected land rent arbitrarily according to the number of acres of land.
