Tao 26

In the presence of Tao,
Human life seems insignificant.
Still, the traveler should mind his possessions.

In the madness of the world,
It is easy to lose focus.
Still, the traveler should stay pointed in the right direction.

Do not take your worldly responsibilities lightly.
To lose sight of the world is to fall from your foundation.
To lose focus is to wander without direction.
