On the cost of climbing too high or too quickly on the social ladder. Be mindful.
The Tao Te Ching, that most august Taoist classic, warns us about being the shaft of wheat that grows higher than the rest. It warns us, too, about rising so high we are bound to fall, and about possessing riches lest we constantly worry about losing them to ill-fortune or thieves. This short report reminds you of the cost of climbing the social ladder too high or too quickly. Keep things in balance. Be mindful and deliberate as you better yourself.
