@Kayceenaz,
God

To Me, He's a He
To She, He's a She
To a Mouse, He's a Mouse
To a Tree, He's a Tree

"Omnipotent!"? Where did you get that from, a book?

@Kayceenaz,
That implies that you know that there is a God.

More precisely, it implies the existence of God.
Whether we know Him is not relevant

The Master doesn't try to be powerful;
thus he is truly powerful.
The ordinary man keeps reaching for power;
thus he never has enough.

The Master does nothing,
yet he leaves nothing undone.
The ordinary man is always doing things,
yet many more are left to be done.

The kind man does something,
yet something remains undone.
The just man does something,
and leaves many things to be done.
The moral man does something,
and when no one responds
he rolls up his sleeves and uses force.

When the Tao is lost, there is goodness.
When goodness is lost, there is morality.
When morality is lost, there is ritual.
Ritual is the husk of true faith,
the beginning of chaos.

Therefore the Master concerns himself
with the depths and not the surface,
with the fruit and not the flower.
He has no will of his own.
He dwells in reality,
and lets all illusions go.
