Scales

Stepping or placing on the scales is always done with care.

Careful placement of feet or bowls is most important to prevent inaccuracies.

Accepting the results is important for a measurement of accuracy, but does not validate the worth of persons.

Leveling by removing the shoes may give a slightly different result, same as scooping the excess grains of food.

Equating the number on the scale to one’s value is unimportant and, like measuring food, it’s a number for a purpose.

Stepping off the scale is not near as important as stepping away to a new day, same with dumping that food into a bowl.
