Daodejing 13 #Dao

Fear disgrace; fear favor;  

consider honor and rejection

equal parts of yourself.

 

What does it mean to consider

disgrace and favor as the same?

 

It means respect for both. 

What does it mean to say

“consider honor and rejection

equal parts of yourself”?

 

It means existence

contains both. 

 

Those who lead others

as they lead themselves

and lead themselves with care

can be trusted to lead.
