Forty-six

In the land where the way of life is understood
Race horses are led back to serve in the fields;
In the land where the way of life is misunderstood
War horses are bred on the autumn harvest.

Owning is entanglement.
Wanting is bewilderment.
Taking is the presentment:
Only a person who contains content
Remains content.
