Verse 77 Two Opposite Processes
The Way of the Great Integrity
is like stringing a bow,
pulling down the high,
lifting up the low -
Shortening the long,
lengthening the short
to take from the excessive
and give insufficiency support.
How opposite to our social norms
which increasingly impoverish the poor
to further enrich the rich
who do not need any more.
How can we gather the world's wealth
to create abundance for all in need?
Through rediscovering the Great Integrity,
by acting without praising the deed.
