TAO TE CHING 72

coooo

When do people do not fear

The dreadful consequences of their actions

A dreadfully greater force

Is sure to approach them

Do not make their homes

Into prisons

Do not burden them

With oppressive lives

Truly, when you do not burden others

They will not become a burden to you

Therefore, the sage

Is self-aware

Without being self-obsessed

Loves his self

Without giving preference to his self

Rejecting one

He accepts the other
