Lowering


 Image result for 66


The river makes a valley by flowing beneath it
Carving out all the carvings
The river and the valley work together
The sage leads without leading
He does not contend, and no one contends against him

The mighty ocean is lower
Than the submissive rivers that flow into it
By being lower, the ocean is higher
One who is that of the Dao lowers themselves
Thus becoming higher than those around him
Putting others ahead of himself, he becomes first
