|Heaviness is the root of lightness.
|Composure is the ruler of instability.
|Therefore the sage travels all day
|Without putting down his heavy load.
|Though there may be spectacles to see
|He easily passes them by.
|This being so
|How could the ruler of a large state
|Be so concerned with himself as to ignore the people?
|If you take them lightly you will lose your roots.
|If you are unstable, you will lose your rulership.
