The Master doesn't try to be powerful;
thus he is truly powerful.
The ordinary man keeps reaching for power;
thus he never has enough.
The Master does nothing,
yet he leaves nothing undone.
The ordinary man is always doing things,
yet many more are left to be done.
The kind man does something,
yet something remains undone.
The just man does something,
and leaves many things to be done.
The moral man does something,
and when no one responds
he rolls up his sleeves and uses force.
When the Tao is lost, there is goodness.
When goodness is lost, there is morality.
When morality is lost, there is ritual.
Ritual is the husk of true faith,
the beginning of chaos.
Therefore the Master concerns himself
with the depths and not the surface,
with the fruit and not the flower.
He has no will of his own.
He dwells in reality,
and lets all illusions go.
If you were to provide a first & last name it could help us in solving your query.

How are you doing?
In the meantime nations get announced as featured nations, but I think it’s about time for Mike to be featured nation.

Thanks for asking PQ Forge
How is Mike doing?
My wife and I are doing great though she raises her eye brow when she sees me playing NationStates via two computers. (One has a touch screen).
As a teacher I get to see the impact of Covid-19 on student learning and the societal chasm between the haves and have nots while hoping that the virus has weakened given our lax social distancing reality.
And as a dancer I am saddened that our competition year was cancelled but happy that I can still get into the studio to practice with my Pro and develop routines with my wife.

In harmony with the Tao,
the sky is clear and spacious,
the earth is solid and full,
all creature flourish together,
content with the way they are,
endlessly repeating themselves,
When man interferes with the Tao,
the sky becomes filthy,
the earth becomes depleted,
the equilibrium crumbles,
creatures become extinct.
The Master views the parts with compassion,
because he understands the whole.
His constant practice is humility.
He doesn't glitter like a jewel
but lets himself be shaped by the Tao,
as rugged and common as stone.

Return is the movement of the Tao.
Yielding is the way of the Tao.
All things are born of being.
Being is born of non-being.
