61 – Great Nations Seek the Lower Ground

River Delta

A great nation is like a river delta,
the meeting point of the world –
the world’s mother.

The mother overcomes through peace.

In order to gain peace,
she takes the low ground.

Similarly, the great nation
takes the low position with smaller nations
and wins them over.

The smaller nation takes the low position
and wins over the great nation.

Therefore,
nations can take the low position and win.

The great nation wants to unite the people.
The smaller nation want to serve the people.
Both win.

It is fitting that great things
should take the low ground.
