It is Constantly Changing
Those who want to conquer the world
and make if conform to their own desires
will never have success,
for the sovereignty of the world is subtle thing.
He who tries to shape spoils it.
He who tries to hold it loses it.
The things of the world are constantly changing.
There is a time for things to move ahead,
and a following time for things to retreat;
a time to withdraw internally,
and a following time to expand externally;
a time to grow luxuriantly,
and a following time to decay;
a time to rise up,
and a following time to sink down low.
Therefore, one who does not separate his being
from the deep nature of the universe
avoids all extremes, extravagance and excess.
