Six Ways of Ruling - two of six

Benevolence is infused with being true. Being true means possessing weightiness, a quality that is unyielding and at the same time very genuine. This is conviction grounded in confidence, like the force behind a strong breeze.

Being true to the view of basic goodness, gives us natural diplomacy. Having worked diligently with our own mind, we’re familiar with realms of anger, jealousy and ignorance, as well as those of generosity and joy. We no longer believe we can get what we want with negativity. We’re using difference strategies. By resting in a big mind, we can conquer small mind.
