place your esteem on the tao

ryo takemasa


He who desires

the admiration of the world

will do well to amass a great fortune

and then give it away. The world will respond

with admiration in proportion to the size

of his treasure. Of course, this

is meaningless.


Stop striving after

admiration. Place your esteem on

the tao. Live in accord with it, share with

others the teachings that lead to it,

and you will be immersed in the

blessings  that flow

from it.
