The valley accomplishes everything while doing nothing but being low and open.
By maintaining our modesty and by not considering anything beneath us, we can gain everything.
By being receptive, we can avail ourselves of the spiritual wealth available to us.
By being open, we can receive things beyond what we ourselves might imagine.
