Placing one woman above another encourages competition.
Collecting rare things causes theft.
Openly displaying valuable possessions causes desire and disturbs the mind.

The sage eases people’s hearts by reinforcing one’s True Center,
Weakening ambition
And strengthening character.

The sage encourages people to live simply without desire and to support each other.
By practicing non-action and non-doing,
All will be at peace.
