Tao te Ching, Chaoter 13 - Meditation

Accept disgrace willingly.
Accept misfortune as the human condition.
What do you mean by "Accept disgrace willingly"?
Accept being unimportant.
Do not be concerned with loss or gain.
This is called "accepting disgrace willingly."
What do you mean by "Accept misfortune as the human condition"?
Misfortune comes from having a body.
Without a body, how could there be misfortune?

Surrender yourself humbly; then you can be trusted to care for all things.
Love the world as your own self; then you can truly care for all things.

Prelude to a Meditation --Psalm 131 (130)

Oh Lord, my heart is not proud,
nor are my eyes haughty;
I busy not myself with great things,
nor with things too sublime for me.
I have stilled and quieted my soul
like a weaned child.
Like a weaned child on its mother's lap,
(so is my soul within me.)

O Israel,
hope in the Lord,
both now and forever.

--Psalm 130  Douay translation
