Chapter 72: Loving Yourself

The people don’t fear power, until a large power arrives.

They lack intimacy in their homes, and lack loathing where they grow.

A man does not object to this;
To be according to (the Tao) do not object to this.

To be Saintly yourself, be aware of your uneasiness;
hold yourself admiringly, since you are precious.

The reason to leave that (uneasiness) is to choose this (preciousness).
