consequences for the natural environment, and for the poor of every
nationlargely because of the greed of those who already enjoy vast
wealth and privilege. Just look at what greed has done to our natural
resources like forests, rivers, clean air, and oceans!
Greed has been at the forefront
of the banking crisis and overall economic crisis we find ourselves

The Master has no possessions.
The more he does for others,

The Tao nourishes by not forcing.
By not dominating, the Master leads.
