Tao of Yeshua: Chapter 7

Heaven is long-lasting and Earth abides.
What is the secret of their durability?
Is it not because they do not produce for themselves that they last so long?
Thus the Saint puts himself behind and finds himself at the head.
He puts himself outside and yet he is safe and secure.
Is it not because he meets others' needs that his needs are met?

The sun and rain and soil give without judging,
without preference, and only to others.
When we also give freely
we become leaders provided with peace.
