    Taoist Teaching

    Superior Man

    Editors' note: ‘The superior man should not desire to become cultivated and shine as a gem, neither should he become gross and dull as stones.’ Taoists worked in life, frequently doing menial jobs. They had a strong idea of the concept of being a good householder, and were usually outspoken and unafraid of death as a result of their training. The Tao gave them strength. Lao Tse stressed humility, simplicity and non-attachment. The superior man is one who is awake, who is balanced and knows that everything is Tao.
