Heaven and Earth are Eternal
because they do not live for themselves.
This is the reason
they exist consistently through time.

The sage puts herself last and ends up first.
She identifies herself with the Universal Self
And thus remains constant.

Isn’t this so because
she lacks personal self-interest?

This is why she will succeed
in all of her personal endeavors.
