Favor and disgrace startle us

13

Favor and disgrace startle us.
Value trouble as much as your body.

Why does favor and disgrace startle us?
Favor enhances the inferior.
Receiving it startles,
and losing it also startles.

Why value trouble as much as your body?
The reason I have trouble is because I have a body.
If I had no body, where would the trouble be?

So, if you value the world as you do your body,
you can be trusted with the world.
If you love the world as you love yourself,
you can be responsible for the world.
