The mountain tree develops slowly for it's devoted
to it's own law of being that it be firmly rooted.
The mountain tree's a landmark from quite a distance.
thus it's flourish serves it's region's beneficence.
Development: To improve the general morality
the superior one abides in virtue and dignity.
Inner peace guards against precipitous action
until one grows roots of outward penetration.
This is also true of any efforts to influence.
Proper growth, by cultivation, is of the essence.
Gentleness causes one to be outwardly adaptive.
In so doing one becomes effectively penetrative.
As persuading a girl to come home to one's place
certain formalities must be observed for success.
Success... The maiden is given in marriage.
Good fortune (If you can afford a carriage).
The idea of development is that it is gradual
and can be applied to other situations as well.
As in the example of appointing of an official:
It's a matter of demonstrating proper protocol.
Development must be kept in it's proper place.
Haste is not wise... It can lead to disgrace.
Outward expressions of your inner calm
show the deep-rootedness of your inner realm.
The very gradual nature of the developments
makes it a requirement to have perseverance.
Perseverance alone is what is preventing
these slow processes from coming to nothing.
So do not sprout like an annual plant
that rapidly withers and is all-too-soon spent.
