Lead By Following

Rivers carve out valleys by flowing underneath

Thus the river is the master of the valley

In order to master people

One must represent them as their servant

In order to lead people

One must follow

Thus when a sage rises above people

They do not feel oppressed

And when a sage stands before people

They do not feel ruled

Thus the popularity of a sage does not fail

He does not tussle, and thus no one contends against him
