Once you have the right values firmly in place, you have the potential to positively influence other people by giving them an example to follow.
Once others start to emulate your virtue, your influence will go viral: spreading from person to person, family to family, community to community, and country to country until it proliferates throughout the whole world.
What is firmly established cannot be uprooted.
What is firmly held cannot slip loose.
In this way, the ancestral sacrifice is carried on,
From generation to generation.
When cultivated and practiced in the person,
Virtue becomes real.
When cultivated and practiced in the family,
Virtue becomes abundant.
When cultivated and practiced in the community,
Virtue is everlasting.
When cultivated and practiced nationwide,
When cultivated and practiced worldwide,
Virtue becomes universal.
Therefore see the person as a person,
The family as a family,
The community as a community,
The nation as a nation,
And the world as universal.
How do I know that the world is like this?
By means of this.
