Verse 34 of the Tao Te Ching describes greatness in an entirely different manner. Such a quality is the Tao, which is so all-encompassing that every plant, creature and human originates and lives because of it, yet it doesn't seek to dominate anyone or anything. The Tao doesn't ask for recognition of any kind, for it has no interest in fame or being thanked for all that it provides. It is this indifference toward notoriety that makes true greatness.
It is a simple procedure to calculate the number of seeds in an apple. But who among us can ever say how many apples are in a seed? No one-and the reason is that the answer is infinite. Endless! That is what the abundance principle is all about: endlessness.
