How does the Great Sea become leader of the valley?
The Great Sea is the leader of the rivers and valleys
because she is able to take the lower position.
Therefore one that desires to be above others,
surely ends up on the bottom.
If one wishes to be ahead of others,
she must surely be walking behind.
The true sage is given her place above
but does not weigh heavily on her people.
She stands before them as a leader,
and causes them no harm.
The world below is happy to uphold such leadership
She does not compete and therefore
the world has nothing against her.
