The world is full of chaos because of a system that has lost its way. So long as the proposed solutions can only exist within the upside-down global economic system, chaos will remain.
#39 - Chapter Two of Daodejing
In chapter two of Daodejing, Laozi explains why we need to accept the wholeness of life and not cling to our narrow actions and views. We also explore the role of death anxiety and how it leads to people seeking security in dogma and cultural symbols.
