Part One: The Canon of Secular Life

Chapter Seven: The World

1. On the World

The world is a great household that encompasses all of humanity. The human race, as individuals, families, societies, and nations, must fulfill its respective Ways, while at the same time carrying out well the Way as fellow beings of this world.
When dealing with the myriad affairs of the world, one should completely understand that all the affairs involving oneself, one’s family, the society, the nation, or the world are ultimately but a single affair. Hence, in any situation, one should employ the small without ever forgetting the great. Accordingly, as far as the world is concerned, the entire human race must unwaveringly aspire, understand, and cooperate for the sake of world peace and the common benefit of all humankind.
