Chapter 77: Heaven’s Way

The Path to Heaven, is it not like the stretching of a bow?

The favored, it humbles, the lowly, it elevates.

To exist with remainder, it causes harm;
for those who are insufficient, it supplements.

Heaven’s Way is to remove where there exists abundance
and to heal where there exists insufficiency.
(Heaven levels the playing field.)

Man’s Way is not so.
Take from the insufficient to give to the abundant.

Who can exist to use his abundance to revere the world?
Only the very most chaste.

To be like to the saints,
act without needing to rely upon achievement.
Accomplish without needing to dwell on the wish to appear worthy.
