60 - Restraint - Restricting

Setting bounds:  To set limits, to restrain, to economize, to save.  Here there is a Moral Principle:  To restrain one’s behavior.  To set limits on one’s expenses and boundaries for conduct is regarded as a sign of moral excellence.  But to be overly restrictive can cause pain - that is not encouraged.  

When restraint is exercised in the work of governing, suffering is lessened or stopped.  Property suffers no damage, and the people are not harmed. Harsh restraint must not be persistently applied because it leads to exhaustion.

THE LINE OF FOCUS - THE CHALLENGE:

Focus - Line 3:  At this time, there is sighing over the “lack of restraint” in ourselves and in others.  Normal limits have been reached, but the one at this point “Knows No Bounds”. In the end he will lament and sigh.  He creates his own reality;  there is no one else to blame.
