The Dao remains undefeated, untied; simply perfect. It wins without struggle and overcomes all foes. There is no way to defeat the Dao, for even the most skilled warrior, the wisest general, the most exalted conqueror will go down to defeat. Without effort, the Dao rolls on through it all. Perhaps we can learn something from this. Maybe there are times when we just try too hard for things. if we learned to pull back, we could go forward.
