Tao Te Ching Chapter 18

Even with guidance this chapter remains a mystery to me.

Thank you to Derek Lin’s Tao Te Ching Annotated and Explained.Screen Shot 2016-08-10 at 9.54.38 AM

The great Tao fades away
There is benevolence and justice
Intelligence comes forth
There is great deception

The six relations are not harmonious
There is filial piety and kind affection
The country is in confused chaos
There are loyal ministers
