Verse 7

Heaven is ancient
Earth is long-lasting
Why is this so?—
    Because they have no claims to life
By having no claims to life
    they cannot be claimed by death

The Sage puts his own views behind
    so ends up ahead
He stays a witness to life
    so he endures
What could he grab for
    that he does not already have?
What could he do for himself
    that the universe itself has not already done?
